install my mouse driver - Win95 uninstalls

Have mouse systems 3 button optical serial mouse which
uses fsi2 installation program.  After it installs I reboot.
The mouse works fine until moments later Win95 tells me
it has detected new hardware.  It then uninstalls a new
mouse driver which kills it.  How do I stop Win95 from being
so "smart"?

Comments only.  I'll award on a first come first correct.

The next time it loads it go to device manager and see if both mice are there. If so highlight the one you don't want and check disable in all profiles. See if it tries to come back

OK, I'll give it a try tonight, but I don't think I remember seeing two.
I do remember killing the whole p&p entry.  Later.  Thanks

Try going into safe mode (press f8 when the computer says "Starting Windows 95") and check for the mouse in device manager (one might be hidden)

This has been a long time comming.
I just brought in my machine to work to try
these things out.  A few more attempts
at home failed.  You ever been to a point where
you want to chuck the damn thing out the
window?  Well, I'm there now.

Both mice were not their.

Only one mouse driver loads.

Yes I have, many times, all I can say is keep trying.
When it says it found new hardware, can you cancel it or is it the auto kind where it knows where the driver is?

It begins 'found new hardware'.  Then there
is nothing I can do.

Go out and buy a logitech mouse, they only cost $25 dollars and work excellent and then take that old mouse and smash it up into many little pieces just to make you feel better... Hope this helps
