Installing MS Wireless Intellipoint mouse 5.2

by coeurdalene / January 21, 2006 12:31 PM PST

I ordered an MS Wireless mouse. I already have one at home but I'm gone for a couple of months, so I ordered one for here. When I put in the CD, it tells me in Spanish that this program is already installed and I can't really translate what it tells me to do, but it looks like I should be able to use the installed Intellipoint which I found in add and remove programs. However, it doesn't work. I've restarted the computer, pressed the re-set buttons etc. but no luck. I'm reluctant to uninstall the old and install the new,because I don't have the original CD from when I installed the first wireless mouse and I will need that when I return home to connect the original mouse. I went online to MS Hardware and they have a download for 5.3 but not 5.2. I am such a newbie that I don't know if those would be one and the same. If this makes sense to someone could you please advise me. Thank you.

posting in a variety of forums. As David succintly pointed out, this is a forum for ''security'' issues. Since you are a newbie, I can understand your confusion.

While you could post in the PC Hardware forum, I would suggest you post in the Newbies forum here:


Or.. you can use the ''Search'' option at the very top of the page, where you should find some answers. (Try the ''Newbies'' first. ;))

Good luck..
(I'd try to answer your question, but I too just got a wireless mouse. :))

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?
