2K safe mode not loading logitech mouse driver
mac May-06-02 07:26 PM

Recent worm fix provided by norton/symantec requires booting to safe mode, but my 2K didn't load my mouse...

I believe i should chase for a more updated driver which is a pain.. is there any other ways to make the mouse work?

Windows 2000 is meant to run on newer computers, and all newer computers use a PS2 or a USB Mouse ... its part of the ATX standard.

So would I, but would make do using the keyboard to handle the virus problem. Most anything that can be done with a mouse can be done with a keyboard, albeit less conveniently for many steps. Larry
