I seem to be having the same problem you're in whenever I
exit firefox I get a slow reaction from my mouse from my
computer experience I think it's due to accidently removing certain registries on accident you might wanna try to see if you got a emergency cd thats refreshes the whole os or just the registry although there is an alternative way to fix the registry by going to start then run type in command after that type in scanreg /fix it should fix the registry though it hasn't worked for me but might for you
Recently my computer has been having an occasional slow reaction to typing and mouse clicks sometimes 15 seconds!
I have windows ME installed on a Compaq mv740. The only new programme I have downloaded recently is Picasa2 and Hello.When I try to do a thorough scan I keep getting a meesage saying that windows cant do it because another programme is trying to do something. This happens even when I'm not running anything else. I have a virus scan Nod32 and Xoftspy on the computer. I have tried another mouse but it doesn't help.
