    Mouse Pointer Sticks


    After installing Windows 8 on my HP laptop and Desk computers. I notice that the mouse point on both machines 'stick" when I drag on the "slide bar" or even when highlighting txt. Both computers are loaded with their separate Windows 64bit Pro. One copy bought from a store and the lappy downloaded from Microsoft.

    The lappy mouse is a new (2 days old) Logitech Bluetooth M555b and the desktop Logitech M510 wireless.

    I have (before anyone suggests) checked the batteries and installed the latest software drivers for both.

    Sticky Mouse Cursor


    Fixed, done and dusted! I had a problem with a web site and it was suggested that I put IE 10 in Compatibility Mode. That killed two birds with one stone. No more sticky mouse and the web sites are fine.
