My wife was trying to remove unwanted programs. Now the DVD player does not work. In the my computer icon, the DVD icon is not there. What can be done to repair this?


That icon is present whenever the _hardware_ is connected to your computer. So, removing "software" should _NOT_ have removed that icon.

Right-mouse-click on My Computer.]
Click Properties.
Click Hardware.
Click Device Manager.
Expand the 'DVD/CD-ROM' branch of the tree.
Your DVD-drive should be listed.
If not, shutdown your computer, and open the case.
Check that the "power" and "data" cables from the computer to the DVD--drive are connected.
If they are, it's possible that the drive itself has "failed", independent of the "clicking" done by your spouse.

My wireless optical mouse is no longer working


You replaced the batteries. Okay. Did you install drivers for the mouse from a CD? Are you using Windows XP? Do you notice any change if you use the mouse on a darker surface as opposed to lighter surface? If the computer installed the drivers for you, then you might want to delete them in Device Manager (might be called something like HID-Compliant Mice. Single click on that entry, press the delete key. You might have to reboot your PC after that. From there you might have to unplug, then plug in the mouse again and you should notice the driver reinstalling. Give it a second and all should be good.

*Access the Device Manager by right-clicking on My Computer, select Properties, go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

Cd/rom not working


Try deleting it in the device manager and then reboot your computer to see if it will detect it, then when it asks, point it to the driver.

Okay. Restart your computer and after, go to device manager (right-click on My Computer/Properties/Material/Device manager). Do you see a CD-Rom/DVD drive?
