I write this in the hope that somebody will be able to help me.
I have an Acer Aspire 5520 AMD Turion 64 x 2 (2.0 Ghz, 3 GB RAM) (Vista Home Premium) which I purchased about six months ago. I loaded a lot of software onto this machine; however, I do not run much software at any given time. I have a serious problem.
Without warning and without predictability, the mouse pointer goes berserk, and the pointer moves, jerkily, all over the screen. This results in applications being triggered, windows being reduced in size, applications being terminated, and general shambles.
I have scanned my hard drive for scumware, spyware, and other forms of malware -- and every scan is negative. I use RegistryCleanerPro to check the registry (this tool cost me about £35.00), and every scan is negative for errors. This problem is driving me crazy, and I have no idea what I should do to resolve it.
My mouse is a standard, no-frills optical mouse by Technika (model TKOPTM2), which I bought from a store such as Tesco (I cannot remember exactly where I got the mouse, but there is nothing special about it).
Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I can get around this problem? Has anybody else experienced this problem? Is there a generic set of optical mouse drivers
that I can download? If so, I would be very grateful if somebody would tell me where I can find these drivers.
I eagerly await feedback. I can be reached at philipchandler DOMAIN earthlink period net.
