The problem with my mouse lose control of it at random times. My mouse would turn off as if disconnected but a second later, the computer would detect it and make the usual found new hardware sound.

After a fresh format, the system runs fine. But after some time, the problem returns. I figure it may possible be a virus. I've run a Norton scan on it and didn't find any virus on the computer. So I then installed Zonealarm to make sure there wasn't someone from the outside of my system doing things to it. That didn't resolve the issue either.

So now I'm just not sure what the problem is.
My next attempt is to install 3 or 4 other virus scanners to check and see if the virus is sneaking pass norton.

I've also tried using another mouse (different model) and the same issue occurs. This problem is also happening on another computer that I own.

I'd appreciate any suggestions that anyone might have.
Thank you

Yup, I've tried all the varius usb slots with no luck.
I just ran AVG and they also did not find a virus.

I don't think it's a virus. Mice use IRQ's and resources, so it may be that it's conflicting somewhere. If it came with a USB to PS/2 adapter, try that out. I have a system that doesn't like the USB plug.

Drivers are a big deal as well. Also, make sure you have the USB driver update. I'm not sure if SP1 took care of it, but there's updates for it around microsoft and update.

I always keep my computer updated with microsoft update.
I've never had a problem with the microsoft drivers as I've been using the system for a over a year and only had to recently format because of this mouse issue.

My mouse doesn't need any batteries, its just a cheap simple logitech wheelmouse. Perhaps my mouse is "dying". But its still odd that this problem is occuring on both of my computers with 2 mouses.
