after a couple of minutes it switches into its fast-indexing mode. As soon
as I move the mouse it reverts to its "indexing speed is reduced due to user
Anyway, yes, I have a Microsoft wireless USB mouse. I've read the other
posts on the Internet about this problem. It seems that the solution is a
recent MS update for 'HID non-user input data filter.' I don't recall
getting such an update, and there is no such optional update offered to me by
Windows update. I can't find a way to tell if it's already installed, either.
Another thing: This very same hardware (PC, kbd, mouse, everything) did not
have this problem with my previous Vista install. (I had to wipe it and
start over due to a different, unresolvable, issue with the Search function
-- now that issue is fixed but instead I have this one.) I do recall getting
the 'HID non-user input data filter' update for the previous Vista install.
And, the same hardware also worked fine with XP.
