    Forget about interference - blow your mouse!


    I've had the same kind of problem as described in this thread with a Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000. I was really frustrated for a long time. I tried every trick in the book: reinstalling the drivers, moving the tranciever to another USB port, replacing the batteries, turning off a wireless phone, checking for malware - you name it! Nothing worked. Then I suddenly came to think of one thing: My wireless keyboard using the same tranciever was not affected. Why so? The trouble had to be related to the mouse itself. I started to investigate. I put the mouse upside down and then I noticed that the light from the blue LED inside was kind of blurred. This LED is at the bottom of a hole and over some years of use the hole was partially filled with dust. The cure? I blew out the dust, put the batteries back in and now my mouse is working perfectly!

    Regards,
