Hi. I have a problem with my friends computer. I actually found a topic very similar to the problem I'm having now. Actually, it's the same problem. here's the topic. http://www.mytechsupport.ca/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=42&topic=1132&SearchTerms=mouse,doesn't,work
I'm having the exact same problem, but I'm not sure how to resolve it. The mouse works fine in safe mode. I tried doing the scan registry and it found nothing. Tried to reboot from a previous date, and got an error message. I'm not sure what else to do. I recently came from the virus section on the forums, and they're telling me that my system is clean of viruses. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Try this
Reboot to Safe Mode
Open Device Manager
Remove ALL Mouse-related entries
Reboot to Normal Mode- Widnows should find the drivers and reinstall them - hopefully curing your problem.

Thanks, I'll try that tomorrow. What about the washed out colors?

Do the same for the Display Devices (Graphics Adapters) and Monitors as for the Mice.

No luck. I uninstalled the driver in safe mode, and then reinstalled it when prompted in normal mode, reset the computer, and still nothing. No cursor.
