    USB Mouse bonkers in 9879 in VM. PS/2 Mouse OK !!!!

    Hi there

    "Back to the future". Bog standard Ms USB mouse doesn't work properly in W10 build 9879 VM after latest Windows updates applied (Ok on earlier releases). VMware tools etc all installed -- no difference. The Toolbar only works when the VM is in Windowed mode (i.e not full screen).

    Strangely running on an older computer with a PS/2 mouse it works 100% OK ????? I haven't used one of those sort of mice since XP days - I had one lying around --surprised it even worked !!! - Not a good mouse though as it's not an optical one.

    (A USB mouse does work when connected to the PS/2 port via an old USB==>PS/2 connector (yes I still had one of those !! --Moral don't throw old connectors away they often come in handy when you least expect !!!).

    Jimbo, do you have MS Mouse and Keyboard Center installed by any chance? If so, do you know when that installed? All of sudden I boot up and it's crashing and causing a blue reboot screen.
