Are you sure it's just the mouse hanging up? Keyboard and rest of Windows is still OK after mouse hang?

1. Remove the modem and any serial connection to the PC.
if the problem gone then you know you have a conflict with the #1.

if not hanging then you have:
A. Bad mouse.
B. wrong driver.

take the mouse to a friend and try it there.

I finally got an answer from technical support.  He had me go into "My computer--system--settings"  and in settings, under options he had me undo the DMA. So that is what I did and now I am waiting to see if the problem happens again.

I am new at all of this, so you have to talk to me like I'm 6. Thank You for all of your help!
