Usually a combo of Winmodems and DMA being disabled.
However, today's spyware plague can't be discounted. Work this list.
2. DMA enable on all drives.
3. No Spyware.
In closing if they use nothing but Internet Explorer, the machine will have Spyware.
Working with a friends computer running win98, Internet Explorer, dial up connection and standard PS2 mouse. Connecting through BT yahoo 24/7. During downloads, the mouse starts to move slowly and jerkily. It also seems to ignore any mouse clicks while downloading. This only happens during download. The mosue works perfectly during normal P.C. use or onec the download is complete. Have tried thoroughly cleaning mouse but, as expected, this has no effect. Have removed mouse driver and re-installed it to no avail.
Has anyone had this problem before and managed to find out what the problem is?
Many thanks for any replies.
