I've searched but cannot find if there is an updated driver that will work.
The mouse is basic but keeps disconnecting and quickly reconnecting every few seconds .
I have an old Microsoft intellimouse (I think that's what it was called) model ite 78cj that connects via usb.

There seem to be websites that have later drivers but I don't know if the websites are safe.

The version I have at the moment is: 6.3.9600.16384

Just wondering if I can get a more recent driver.
The one I have now says 2006!!
Is there a safe website or tool that can find a more recent driver?

Win8.1 has built-in drivers for that old Microsoft intellimouse model so you really do not need a new driver

I think something had gone wrong with the laser of the mouse.
I'm now using a basic Dell mouse i forgot I had, with no problems.

in other words, it was a hardware problem (the MS mouse itself - probably has been worn out)
