I have a similar problem (using a serial to ps/2 mice
adapter). But this is only a problem on some of the computers in my company, although all are running
on windows 2000.
With serial mice slowly getting replaced by ps/2 and
USB, I am forced to recycle old serial mice.
It is a real nuisance. Somebody please help.
And I am unwilling to spend money on a new
computer just because of a mouse problem!!!
