Mouse is "hit and miss"

hi all

firstly i hope this is in the right section.when i say the mouse is hit and miss i mean sometimes when trying to select text it misses the start of it and selects a small section in the middle.likewise if i'm using maps it fails to drag the map at times.i'm sure you've got this before.i'm curious since i didn't make any changes to my computer.any info you can supply would be most helpful.

EDIT:i also moved it to other usb ports on the computer but same story.

Hello recycler mate have you tried another mouse?? and just for starters run these if you haven't already
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Disk Check < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2
Run these in safe mode and the sfc often best run for two to three runs

Edit: Mate I would even try disabling and preferably getting rid of the McAfee as I have never been a fan of it. If you want a replacement for it there are plenty of decent free ones I can link you to.

No worries recycler the MuckAfee I am assuming you used the removal tool to do that and even if you did I would check in the registry for any left over entries - if you are happy to do that.

You need to Start > type regedit > right click on that and choose Run as admin > go to the HKEY's LOCAL_MACHINE and CURRENT_USER > Software and scroll down the listing and look for McAfee in them and what I do is is to right click on them and then delete - it removes the very last traces of everything.

Mind you I always do this before I go and do anything there Registry - Backup and Restore

But if you are not happy with doing that then just leave as is.

One last thing you might be interested in is this Optimize Windows 7 < work through it slowly - you may lose some of the "bling" like transparency with a particular tweak but it is reversible. I use it on all my 7 machines to speed them up and make them more efficient.


Edit: If you are not sure with the registry stuff ask first

Good to hear and glad that AV is gone as it is one that is sometimes bundled with machines one buys.
