    Floating Mouse Issues


    Iím having this issue with the cursor freely floating around which is becoming quite
    annoying.
    I looked in myMouseProsperities window properties & nothing looks out of the
    ordinary. I ran the Defragmentand Optimize Drives Which made no difference. Might anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for responding to my post. I'll try to make this quick & simple. I have a physical disability whereby I have no use of my arms/hands & wear a headpointer to peck away at the keys. As far as a mouse I kind of don't use one because I have a touch screen which I use my headpointer. However, I do have a mouse hooked up to my laptop for which I use for when I need to click the right button. The mouse happened to be on an uneven surface which was causing my fluttering cursor. I probably told you more then you care to know, but thanks again!
