This is a virus/malware issue. It's best to just reinstall the OS and all the software. You may try to hunt it down with some antivirus/antispyware apps as I did, but that's only the long way arround, as the virus makes enough damage to your system that the only solution is reinstall. I wasted a couple of days trying to solve the issue and gave up on it and just reinstalled everything. Hope this helps

    Mouse didn't detected

    Touch pad usb or wireless mouse ?
    Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs. Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time. Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

    Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard. Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse. This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function. Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button. Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen. Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal. Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter." Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab. Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section. Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box. Press the space bar to remove the check mark. Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button. Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box. Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu." Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart." Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function. Open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section. Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse. Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse. Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal. Check to see if the mouse is working properly. Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu." Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it. Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box. Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically. Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

    Windows start bar has completely gone


    You cannot see the taskbar (which contains the "Start" button) anywhere on your desktop.


    1. The taskbar may be hiding at the bottom of the screen after being accidentally resized.

    2. If the presentation display was changed, the taskbar may have moved off of the visible screen (Windows 7 and Vista only).

    3. The taskbar may be set to "Auto-hide" (Windows XP with Service Pack 2 only).


    1. Put the mouse pointer on the bottom border of your screen.

      • If the pointer turns into a double-arrow doublearrow.gif, click and drag upwards.
      • If your taskbar isn't hiding at the bottom of the screen, try moving the mouse to the right, left, and top edges, looking for the double-arrow.

    2. Press the Windows logo key and the P key on your keyboard to bring up the presentation display mode options.

      • Make sure "Computer Only" is selected.
      • Use the arrow keys to toggle between options and Enter to select the correct display mode.

    3. Press the Windows key on the keyboard to bring up the Start Menu

      • Right-Click on the taskbar and select Properties.
      • Toggle the 'Auto-Hide the taskbar' checkbox and click Apply.
      • If it is now checked, move the cursor to the bottom, right, left, or top of the screen and the taskbar should re-appear.
      • Repeat step three to return to your original setting.

    When ever i move my curser on the screen the the scroll button comes on how can i get rid of it

    Troubleshooting a mouse that scrolls up and down uncontrollably depends on various factors. Possibilities extend from the class of surface to hardware problems or configurations.


    A variety of laptop mice exist.

    A mechanical mouse uses a hard rubber ball that rolls with any movement of the mouse.

    An optical mouse uses an LED sensor to detect movement.

    An infrared, cordless mouse requires and relays a signal to the mouse port found on the laptop.

    The base of the trackball mouse remains stationary, while the trackball sitting on top of this mouse reflects all movement.


    A mouse depicts a device that controls the movement of the cursor or pointer on a monitor or display.


    Several reasons exist for a cursor to uncontrollably scroll up and down on a display.

    Static electricity often initiates wild cursor reactions.

    To solve this, use pre-moistened computer cleaning wipes to help control static electricity and clean electronic surfaces.

    Bad batteries can trigger impromptu cursor movements in a wireless mouse.

    Electrical interferences can also produce the scrolling effect. Radio, wireless or electrical objects may require removal from close proximity.

    The mouse needs to stay in range of the receiver, meaning near the Laptop

    I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

    then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

    in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

    click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver

    click on >> control panel all control panel items mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp

    in windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp

    hope this helps

    Choose Screen Resolution For higher legibility of documents on screen, you can adjust the screen resolution of your monitor (for monitors that support more than one screen resolution option). The higher the number of pixels, the more information you can display on your screen and the smaller items appear. Lower screen resolution makes items appear larger and can benefit people with vision impairments. This procedure tells you how to adjust screen resolution through Display Properties in Control Panel.
