Received a message on my NT4.0 box. "The ring buffer that stores incoming mouse data has overflowed"  How do I clean out or increase the size of this ring buffer?

Microsoft Bus Mouse Port Driver Entries
The following value entry for the Microsoft bus mouse are found in this subkey:
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Busmouse\Parameters
 
MouseDataQueueSize     REG_DWORD     >= 0x1
Specifies the number of mouse events to be buffered internally by the driver, in nonpaged pool. The allocated size, in bytes, of the internal buffer is this value times the size of the MOUSE_INPUT_DATA structure (defined in NTDDMOU.H). Consider increasing the size if the System log in Event Viewer frequently contains this message from the Busmouse source: “The ring buffer that stores incoming mouse data has overflowed (buffer size is configurable via the Registry).”
Default: 0x64 (100)
