mouse freeze at start up

by jbable / July 8, 2010 8:14 AM PDT

I have a Toshiba satellite a205. I had installed win7 and all was alright until I got a suspected a virus. I re-installed and now every second boot starts with a frozen mouse. I re-installed the mouse drivers but it didn't help. Whats a guy to do ?

Mouse issue

First thing, try another mouse. If second mouse has same effect, it sounds as if you need to do some clean up work on the system, likely malware/virus. You didn't mention whether the touchpad gave the same erratic effect, that would be an indicator as well.
