    I installed a wireless mouse.

    The min.specs was for a Pentium CPU.

    My computer has Intel Celeron CPU. (I thought otherwise when buying the

    (my computer fullfills all the other min specs)

    The mouse seems to work ok until I have a few program running at once, at
    which point everything freezes and even ctrl-alt-del doesn't do anyting - I
    have to switch off and reboot.

    Before installing mouse my computer rarely freezes, now it's almost every
    other hour.

    Being very clueless re: differences between different CPUs, could the
    installation of the mouse be causing this freezing? And if so, in laymans
    terms why???

    Did you uninstall the previous mouse? There is a possibility
    that the old mouse driver and associated software could be
    causing this.

    It is unlikely that this is a processor issue.

    There is a possibility that the drivers supplied with the
    new mouse have bugs and getting the latest drivers from the
    manufacturer's web site is almost invariably worth doing.

    There is a possibility that the mouse wireless link is being
    affected by other wireless devices nearby (e.g. cordless
    telephone, cordless doorbell, cordless baby alarm, AV

    Also there is a significant possibility that this is just
    conicidence. Do you have adequate anti-virus, anti-spyware,
    anti-intrusion measures in place?
