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!
