Maybe there is a cat sitting the other side???? As a mouse I certainly would only run the other way !!!!! Seriously - no idea except cleaning the insides of the mouse - which you have already done, check also the underside of the mouse that no dirt has accumulated there either and that the mouse pad is clean too. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN - Vic "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ _____ From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Barbara Schonfeld Sent: Sunday, 01 June, 2003 20:47 To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Good Thanks Dave..

Hey I do have a question ...on win 98se what would make a mouse only work up and down,, or after I fiddled with it , then only go sideways. It is on my kids computer. We cleaned the mouse..that didnt help.. still wants to run one way only. Any ideas?
