I have a mouse that locks up after a while.

Swapped optical mini-mouse from laptop to desktop and
MS optical mouse from desktop to laptop. Absolutely no
probs for 3 weeks. Switched back and HEY PRESTO - prob
back again. Stopped EPSON STATUS MONITOR and problem
does not occur again...
Both mice are USB
Both are 3 button wheel
XP on both PCs

--- DO EPSON ADMIT RESPONSIBILITY? ---

Anyone know ?

I actually just purchased an epson printer. $40 shipped from epson. It's a great printer - but nothing I would call spectacular.

Anyway - I hate the software. And I run it through a Windows Server 2003 print server. I'm going to actually try this week to find another type of driver for the printer that doesn't include the crap monitor.

To GT500Shlby,

Dont look for another driver, just of Epson Status Monitor!

Run Msconfig, go to 'startup' and disable ESM - DONE!

ESM on my machine is'EFATIAJE.exe'

Hope this helps.

Now, back to original thread. Lets sort this prob together...
