Cursor Problems

By alex.mccartan ·
I'm using Win98se, IE5 from a clean install. From time to time the mouse stops working and the cursor goes to the top left of the screen and then runs around the desktop, opening and closing menus, taskbars and Applications. This happens when onlineor not. The only solution is to shut down. I have tried cleaning the mouse and using a different mouse.

I need more info, What type of mouse? Com or PS2? What else is happening when the system exhibits this behavoir? And what all is running in the background? It could be several things but it sounds like a hardware conflict, What other hardware do youhave in the system? And what brand/model of motherboard?

You may have a hardware conflict or a virus,run the anti-virus then try using another mouse to see if this will stop.

If it is not a bad mouse then it sounds like someone is remotely controlling your PC. When you say it happens offline are you still connected to the Internet (DSL or Cable) or are you on a LAN?

I have had this problem before. We were using, I think it was a MS Intellipoint Mouse, or maybe it was a Scrollpoint, I am not too sure, I know it was a Microsoft.

Anyway it turned out to be a defective mouse. Maybe this is your problem.
