Thanks in advance.\n\nI am stumped. I have a customer with an old W98SE computer. I say, "don't \npay me, just buy a new computer". She won't hear of it.\n\nOkay the problem. When the computer gets to the windows98 desktop, there is \nnot a pointer.\n\nThings that I tried:\n\nInstalled a USB mouse\nTried two different mouse drivers\nChecked mouse settings in the control panel\n\n\n\nI can go into safe mode and the mouse works. I have stopped all startup \nprograms via msconfig/startup. I have scanned for a virus. Also, when the \nscreen saver engages, a mouse movement will not stop the saver. An enter \nkey will.\n\nWhile in safe mode, I uninstalled all unneccisary programs.\n\nAny suggestions would be appreciated,\n\nDave H.
