What's the optical mouse's make/model? Is it a PS/2 connections (round,
approx 1/3 inch in diameter.) Or is it a USB mouse? What did you have
installed previously?

There isn't normally any separate Device Manager entry for PS/2 ports,
just the devices (keyboard or mouse) themselves. Furthermore, it isn't
necessary to install any special drivers unless you want the extra
"cool" goodies that the mouse offers.

I suggest you uninstall any programming that you installed, then look in
Device Manager and delete whatever mouse is found, then restart and see
what happens.

You may also need to check BIOS settings and see if there's an option to
enable/disable the PS/2 mouse. What it should be depends on what you
have. PS/2 or USB?

That "model is MD something" simply isn't sufficient information. Again,
I've yet to see a USB mouse that requires additional drivers in Win98
and up.

You say you removed the USB port and reinstalled it. I don't understand
why. Let me see if I can restate my suggestions:

1. In Add/Remove Programs, look for a possible entry from the MD Drivers
installation. If so, uninstall it.

2. In Device Manager, remove the *mouse*. Nothing in the USB section
needs to be removed, only the mouse itself. Then restart and see what
happens.
