    Strange Mouse Problem

    I've solved this problem but thought I would post in case anyone has similar issue.

    I had a problem with my desktop PC where menus didn't respond to mouse commands and the PC didn't respond to the keyboard arrow keys after pressing Ctrl / Alt / Delete. I changed the mouse batteries to no avail then noticed the mouse LED was always on. All is fine now I've swapped to a wired mouse. The offending mouse is an old Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse Model 1026.

    I noticed an unspecified hardware error in Reliability History and have since figured out that the left mouse button microswitch is bust. It's time for a new wireless mouse!
