    Laptop does not see mouse (USB)

    I accessed the usb stickey and was going to edit my registry. I found items to delete but when I tried, I received error, To have permission you right
    click and go to permission, I did then went to Advanced tab to add me in
    for permission. Clicked area to edit, line blinking for letters to write. I could not spell or even just hitting a key like C would not register. Like my keyboard was broke. And it is mounted on laptop. Is there something I missed.

    Compaq Presario M2000 with XP home sp2
    Mouse is wireless optical Model# MO1717-W

    Edit the registry in safe mode. If that doesn't work, what antivirus/antispyware are you running?
    Never, ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly."

    This bothers me... do you have spybot teatimer running? Or other registry protection?

    Sounds like it died... can you check it on another computer?

    I checked it on my desk top. Windows XP is running on it also (Home)
    It stated there is a problem with usb device. The mouse is only a month old if that. Time to go back to vender.
