You should actually do this every year. Even more often if you spend a lot of time on the computer. This is recommended by Kim Komando(the computer guru) in one of her recent emails.

I was shocked to see how well this works,and how far off mine was!


To re-calibrate your mouse, click and hold down on the capital G below, then drag it toward the small g.

If it doesn’t work immediately, you might want to clean your mouse, as the calibration is off.


Good Lord! You’ll Believe Anything

LOL..

Ughh.. By the way, is that a right or left-click?

I'll try that... but I have a hard time catching the mouse, he's always running around the house.

Not cheese. You know how that binds things up. Feed your mouse a little Exlax it will clean it right out.

I use a laptop and haven't had to deal with a mouse in a couple of years. Kind of miss the little thing.
