Well, I go to Software Manager and it says Could Not Find Your Mouse... confused?

It says there is Malicious software trying to access it or w/e?

Check the upper left corner of your menu. Is there a small box visible? If there is, click on it and it will disappear . This should solve your problem. If not, check here:

The link in this thread will take you to every listing for this problem since 2008.

It doesnt work. I fixed it once a few mins ago, I entered my administrator password when checking for updates and it fixed. But it just started again..

Hi,

I am using mint-7 and it doesn't recognize built in mouse on my acer aspire notebook. On the other hand, it recognize a USB mouse.
While I was installing mint-7, I have attached usb mouse instead of built-in synaptic mouse. It may caused to this ?

What is solution, any comments? thanks..
