Ok, I have spent a few days on this and I am about to take a sledge hammer to this laptop and just call it a day.
Laptop =Dell Insipron m5010
Windows 7 Home Premium
Now I have two Mice, both Microsoft.
Wired Comfort Mouse 4500
Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500.
I spent over an hour on the phone with Microsofts tech support and the guy solved nothing. The wired one is hopeless it seems.
We deleted all the drivers
, re-installed the .inf, you name it.
Now the wireless one has a glimmer of hope.
If I plug it while the computer is off, it will work when I turn it on.
The problem occurs after about a minute of logging in, the Driver
Software Installation kicks in and causes my computer to freeze.
It insists on installing, Microsoft Nano Transceiver 2.0. I do not want this to install!
No matter what it comes up though.
If Windows 7 Home had gpedit I could just block it, but it doesn't Thanks Microsoft
I disabled automatic update, so at least now when I unplug it stops trying and doesnt freeze the computer, but I still can't use the mouse.
If anyone has any ideas on how to completely block the Driver Software Installation thing, I would be forever grateful.
