Make sure that the sensor/laser/tracball is not dirty under the mouse

if trackball, turn the wheel around the trackball and the ball will come out, clean the rollers inside and the ball itself

if laser/infrared sensor, make sure that the lens is not dirty, if it is dirty, get a cotton bud and gently wipe the lens. also make sure that the surface the mouse is on is not too shiny or is glass otherwise it will throw the laser off and confuse it

    no problem, but if non of that works, it could mean you need a new mouse as trackball mice have moving parts they eventually wear ou

    no, if it was your mouse driver, you would notice the mouse starting and stopping and sometime suddenly moving somewhere else on the screen without traveling to that area, basically just disappears from where it was and reappears to a new location.

    if the mouse is moving slowly and difficultly then it is a physical problem with the mouse.

    one more thing you could do is take the mouse socket out for the back of your computer and blow into the socket in the computer and blow in the socket on the mouse in case there is dust and dirt on the connections but i very much doubt it.

    nothing much more can be done realy

    sorry

How Norton Antivirus Works


Norton has traditional virus detection method like Signature base and Heuristics base detection, with anti-virus, anti-rootkit, anti-malware, anti-spyware etc. Symantec upgrade and releases new and more improved features with its every release. Signature based detection includes searching for knowing structure within executable code, however your computer can be infected with most new virus which signature is not known. In that case heuristics method can be use it can identify new viruses by variation of such code, in files. Malwares are very difficult to detect even for the most new anti-virus software. If you are using Norton Antivirus, you should update its data-base and virus definition every day, so that when you scan your computer, it can detect all possible threats. Some new features like SONAR, it examines the behaviour of applications to decide whether they are malicious. Various things are checked such as if the program create a desktop shortcut or create add/remove programs entry before determining the program is malicious.

Norton insight is a program that comes with the Norton 360. It improves the speed and quality of computer scan. It identifies well known files of client machine and excludes them from constant monitoring and scanning. It only scans unknown and unsecured files. Skipping the already known files helps the scan more impact.

Norton 360 introduced a very effective tool - Norton Power Eraser, it removes threats which standard anti-virus may miss. It cleans up system where malware prevents anti-virus installation. Apart from these, the key technologies of Norton anti-virus software are anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-rootkit, and pulse-update - provides up-to-the-minute updates that protect against the latest threats without slowing down your computer, firewall software - that can use for mapping and monitoring network.

Uninstall a norton to install to a new upgraded computer ?


Yes, you may. This is directly from the Symantec site:

"If you want to install Norton 360 without purchasing an additional license, then you must uninstall it from one of your existing computers before you install it on your new computer."

Here is a reference website:

Need to be able to re install norton 360 after use of restoration disc


If you are in love with Norton.... Personally I use Avast the free version and have foudn it very good. Just look out for it on the internet. As regards Norton, if you do not have a cd then you must have downloaded an installation file and saved that somehwere, if not I am sure that if you are a registerd user you could still downlad it again if it is still covered byt the licence you paid for.
