RE: mouse not working after 4/8/08 update
I'm having this problem too...
Mouse worked fine before latest update.
It's more than just the mouse, the computer becomes unresponsive for a few
I re-installed windows thinking it was something that could be corrected.
Mouse worked fine until I got the latest updates from Microsoft website.
I've run my Spyware, and Antivirus, but nothing is there to cause this
Of course Windows won't let me do a system restore (don't ask me why).
Funny how these things work (or don't work)...
Windows XP (latest service packs and updates)
Logitech Dual Optical Mouse
(I don't know the other stuff)
It would be nice if Windows would just work...
