Question about Computers & Internet
1) Check the batteries in the mouse
this is typical of weak batteries.
2) Make sure that the radio path between the wireless mouse
and its USB transceiver is not obstructed by a CRT
monitor or anything else that can block or corrupt the signal.
Old CRT monitors, TV's etc emit radio waves that interfere
with wireless communications. So do old ham radios,
portable phones, electric tools, and even old cars.
Keep the mouse transmitter/receiver widgit away from other
electronics and as close to the mouse as possible, with
no objects in between.
3) Make sure that there is not a similar mouse nearby,
(i.e. connected to another computer) working on the
4) Finally, make sure you don't have a back-door Trojan
running on you machine, such as "Back Orifice" or
These can remotely control you desktop, including the
mouse and keyboard.
Disconnect the mouse transceiver from the USB port.
If the mouse pointer still dances on the screen, and
there are no other pointing devices hooked up to the
machine, you have a remote control Trojan.
In such a case, disconnect you machine from the Internet
at once, network and wireless. Then scan and clean your
machine with a good anti-virus program, because these
types Trojan Horses are extremely dangerous. They can
see everything you see, and do anything you can do
when not watching, like steel your personal information,
and/or money from your bank. Anybody with your
personal info can then pretend to be you !!!!
Hey, but don't get a heart attack over it, it's probably
just the batteries. :)
Good luck, Martin
