Hi,
When was the last successful windows update installed on ?

Like I said the newest version of the update I posted does not show the blue tooth issue anymore so possibly manually install it
Possibly it will bring up other missing updates.

Sorry, slow answer, this forum requires logout/in just to see updates of replies. very odd.

update was likely last year around april when MS started making the "optional free update" less optional and more like "we going to cram this on your machine no matter what". It was just after that that they disabled all updating and even made reinstall updates very hard to impossible to do. I spent near a hundred hours on forums and trying to make it work using every tool I could find and even very long command line orders that some folks swore would work. I gave it up as a fools errand.

I hear "manually install" everyplace. I do not have that manual. If you can send a copy I will sure read. anyhow, this issue is likely not about updates as the machine ran for years just fine until this just started. I am almost willing to try a reinstall but, that likely means an automatic jam in of malware10 and that would mean an automatic format C: and get Linux...

done

read it all. seems to be about installs not direct updates. I have been deep into this w/ no joy. I started the p-55 about 4 hours ago. noticed the clock had moved to GMT like it was in a install mode or something, it has actually run longer just this time than in weeks w/o locking, just waiting now..... updated time to nist about 35 min ago, still going. As to the suggestion to take a mouse apart earlier, I would sort of like too but this has no visible entry or bolts...maybe I will just do a search and destroy here... feels good!

Thank you all for good ideas, am progressing on w/ mouse destruction.

Their should be little pads on the bottom of the mouse used to slide the mouse around. Sometimes under those pads are screws.

not hardware

Good day, I am back after days of effort on the OTHER windows broke up machines.

At the risk of some failure I did take that mouse apart more to see if it was hard. I found a way to do so and got it back together and only one button,(right cliker)works less good now. Years back I too had a wire wear out but never one of these high performance cloth covered ones. Especially so that I how have them where they work mostly straight and I have such high dpi that I only move them around 2 inches ever.

SO! Let me say that my actual thinking this is anything hardware driven is zero. I stated earlier that I had tried 3 mice and now have used yet a fourth one and it has no effect at all. 2 wired, 2 w/ dongles. Makes no difference.

I hope some person will come in here who has some real windows knowledge about how to find a root cause. Remember, this thing is turning off USB RESPONSE, not power! The devices still have power, just zero response and it makes no difference what the device is. I believe the correct term here is "hard hangup" and would like some path to finding out WHAT is actually happening in that event.

Hope all is well w/ everyone.

Race, as you discard a mouse problem, it can be a hardware or software on your computer. On software it can be many things, from virus, corrupted files, antivirus etc.
My suggestion will be to boot from a Linux USB flash drive and see if it works without a problem. It it does, try to disable antivirus, firewall etc
