Windows 7: mouse not responding on certain areas of Internet

If you are running a VM it would be helpful to mention it at the start. VM is responsible for capturing the mouse on mouse over. That's why you have to hit a hotkey to release the mouse back to the full desktop. It's likely a VM issue. I'd try on a forum dedicated to the VM you are using for widest readership germane to the issue. Although there is a virtualization sub-forum here. You should probably ask the Mod to move your post there. But I'd try a VM specific forum if you haven't already.

portion that mouse won't work

Not quite sure what you are saying but I think it has something to do with the Virtual machine. I do not go into the virtual machine very often but it is there if I need it.
The mouse problem is only on the Internet. It works fine on any other program on my computer. I have down loaded Microsoft "Fix it". Doesn't work on this problem. I can be on any browser whether it be MSN, Firefox, Yahoo and well I haven't tried any others. My emails are stacking up and I can't delete them. I down loaded Malware bites and that found several bugs and supposedly got rid of them but no improvement.

Mouse not responding

I think my problem is solved. I tried everything I could think of even tried to do a system restore but there is no restore point except earlier this month (when the problem started.
I down loaded something and all of a sudden I got Ask.com as my browser. Well I didn't want that so I went into Internet options and got back on Google and once there the site wanted me to sign up for Google Chrome. I said what the heck and low and behold now the mouse works fine everywhere.
Thanks for your input folks.

Hum so did you delete Ask if you didn't mate might be an idea to check because I find those sorts of ratbag things lurk.

Revo is quite at uninstalling as it checks the registry for you. You can always (if you are game enough) check in regedit H_KEY Current User and Local Machine > Software. I have often found stuff still there too even when Revo has rooted it out.

But only if you are comfortable with it.

Revo uninstaller

I have already downloaded Revo and it does a lot better job than Windows uninstaller.
I will do a Revo uninstall on ASK.com. I should pay more attention to what I am downloading. Kind of like the riders that congress pass without looking at the bills. I also go to Cnet.com and download the so called "Free" cleaners and once they scan and find a bunch of leftover junk, then you need to register to get it to clean up the mess for $29.99. My browser went back to Ask.com even tho I changed my Internet option to Google.

Darryl if you want to have a look at what is in your registry go to Start > type in "regedit" ( without quotation marks) > right click on the little light blue window at the top of Start > Yes > you will get a list of H_KEY entries go to H_KEY_CURRENT USER > click on the little arrow it will drop down a list like you see in my pics > go Software and clcik on the little arrow again it will drop down a further list of what software you have - again see my pics.
Do the same for H_KEY_LOCAL MACHINE and see what you have a lot of things will "double" entries.

If the software reference is not there do a Google for who puts that software out it might not be labeled Ask.

Let us know what you find. But do look at my pics - it seems a little overwhelming but as long as you do not do anything it is ok to do this. If you are familiar with the snip feature do one to send back if you do not know how to do snip - then send any pics using what you are familiar with.
I can go through how to use snip later. It is by far the easiest tool to use - I find anyway.

This application is free and it should get rid of quite a few unwanted Adware junk.

Mouse not responding

That problem has been solved by re installing Google Chrome. Mouse works all over the screen now.
Now I have another problem. Need to start a new thread for this.
Thanks for all your help.
