||Microsoft Mouse Errors
I have a Microsoft
mouse which gives me a GROWSTUB message each time I boot
The system won't remember my MS mouse settings...
Ad infinitum, ad nauseum...
Chances are, you are using an out-of-date
version of the Intellipoint package -- the software that
came with the mouse and provides a number extensions such
as "snap to."
Until recently, this was
the situation with Intellipoint: If you had the original
Intellipoint 1.0 software, MS offered an upgrade to
release 1.1 which, at the time, you could order direct
from Microsoft for a nominal fee. Version 1.1 was still
very flaky under Win95. MS then posted a "Point32
update" that took care of some of the issues, but
you could still encounter serious problems, especially
with 16-bit Windows applications. Personally, I got very
tired of all the synergistic effects and pulled
Intellipoint off my system. I lost a few nice mouse
extensions but gained a lot in terms of stability.
Intellipoint 2.0 is now
shipping with the new Microsoft "wheel mouse."
This version seems to behave itself and should also work
with the older two-button MS mouse. I don't know if
Microsoft offers an update to Intellipoint 2.0, but it
might be worth a phone call to find out.

AND "Windows 95" will give you more than
