ALL I did was replace the almost dead batteries & now its a pita to click on something.
Its like the cursor is on ice, I move it up to click on a bookmark & it slides on by & I have to s l o w l y move it into the area.Its a wireless Microsoft mouse.

Open Mouse by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware, and then clicking Mouse.
Click the Pointer Options tab, and then do any of the following: To change the speed at which the mouse pointer moves, move the Select a pointer speed slider towards Slow or Fast.

Crap, even using it on white paper doesn't fix it. :( Until I get a fix, I'm using a wired (USB) mouse.

Do wireless mouses require a specific type of battery? I took 2 energizers out of it & put in two equivalent batteries.

I have used all different brands of batteries in my wireless mouse before. No problems what so ever. I would suggest getting some lithium ones though, they lasted the longest for mine.

Ok, I will see if I can find some locally, thank you. I'm sticking with the USB mouse till then.
