Windows 7: Weird issue with Mouse

Weird issue with Mouse

Hello everyone,

I use a normal HP mouse, it has been working fine for ages but recently it now and then stops working for a few seconds and then works fine again. I play Call of Duty 4 so it is very annoying to lose because of that.

I looked into my device manager and for some reason it shows up 2 mouse drivers.
Just uninstalled both and plugged my mouse back in. I have done this before and the second mouse driver seems to be coming back all the time.

What can I do to solve this?

I would go to automatic upadates and reset it to inform me when there are new updates. Then you install the ones that you want and hide the ones that you dont. Once the driver is hidden you can return the settings to the prior action.

go to and install the original mouse driver, if a replacement mouse is being used, go to manufacturer site and upgrade mouse driver, if you have a disk that came with the mouse, pop that in and revert the driver back to original.
