frozen mouse pointer/sometimes

Greetings Happy I have a mouse that is acting really strange. For him to work properly I have to re-boot, otherwise, he is frozen. After I re-boot he works until the next day and there he sits, frozen. Any suggestions? Blessings, canna

We need more info about your computer and mouse. What operating system? What type of mouse, brand, etc.? How old is it? Have you installed the software for it? Have you tried swapping in another mouse and do things work correctly then?

A brand new mouse doesn't cost very much and is easy to replace.....

The more information you give us, then better informed our answers will be.

Thank you so much for responding and yes you are right I need to give more info sorry Happy I have a laptop/ Compaq armada 7400 #6266/T4000/D/0/1 I have learned the computer on my own and still learning. I replaced the keypad about 2 months ago, my left "click" broke. My husband helped me and I was surprised how easy it was to do so. I looked thru the manuel and couldn't find anything to help me about this mouse. Like I said, if I totally shut down, he works, strange Happy I have never had any problems with this laptop, I love it. Peace, annie

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
