Mouse cursor freezes position but still works...?


Aug 6, 2004
What happens like 1-2 times a day is that the cursor position will freeze up and stop moving. However, the mouse is still working because I can still do thing like right click and select stuff. Its just that I cant see what Im moused over when I click.

Also although the position of the cursor is frozen it still changes properly in context. It changes to a hand when (I think) I mouse over a hyperlink or it changes to the window resize cursor when (I think) i mouse to the edge of a window.

I have to reboot to solve this but its pretty damn annoying. A couple of times it unfreezes and I can continue. Anyone have a quick way to solve this? I would rather put off the whole formatting thing for a while longer.
