1. check if it works when you click on another clickable area on your web browser
2. test with other mouse, it it works it's a faulty mouse. change mouse
3. test with other browser. if it works it's a corrupted browser installation, reinstall/switch web browser
4. if you suspect you have a virus, scan your computer for virus and spyware (suggestions: AV software: avg 7.5, malware in general: spybot search and destroy, a-squared, adawareSE) and retest.

Virus on pc. installed norton internet security.


Never before have I heard of a VIRUS installing ANTI-VIRUS software. I have had intermittent mouse problems before though. Thought it was a virus, as I interchanged with like 4 other (used) mouses (mice?) and there was no change. Found a fifth used mouse-a genuine Microsoft mouse (I was running Vista 64bit Home Premium) and installed it and my mouse problem disappeared ("installing new device"). I couldn't figure it out for the longest time, (still can't), I'm just glad it cleared up.
I run AVG FREE antivirus software and Ad-Aware anti-spyware (also FREE). I run both of those at least once a week, in addition to defragmenting once a week, haven't had a problem since.

HOME PAGE COMING UP AS ASK HOME PAGE WAS COMING UP WITH YAHOO SEARCH- LEFT 6 YEAR OLD NEPHEW ON PS KIDS RETURNED TO FID ASK AS HOME PAGE


Depending on the browser you are using, you need to reset your home page. Go to the web page you wish to use as you home page. Then go to TOOLS and COMPUTER OPTIONS. Once here look for "USE CURRENT PAGE AS HOME PAGE".
Below are the firefox and internet explorer pages. Just make sure you are on the page you want as your new homepage.

Good Luck

Logitech mx3000 mouse problem


If you have another mouse at hand, try that out and see if you get the same problem. If you do get the same problem, it will be a software issue wit hthe operating system, ususally a virus or some other form of malware - or you may just have a lot of programs consuming a lot of CPU cycles and RAM. Try a different mouse, any mouse except a similar one to the MX3000.
