Adjusting the options using MSconfig can be tricky if you don't know
what you're doing. You can just re-enable everything and uncheck
certain things one by one if you want faster start up
Looking at the task manager will give you an idea of what is running
some things (like Adobe & quicktime I always turn off because these
programs will just load later when needed).
You can also google 'start up programs services' for more info on what different things
There are also programs that will delay start up items so you can begin working faster.
Once you find a good set of selections under MSconfig take notes or use
If it's a USB mouse you could try to plug & replug it in
The mouse can also disapear while using some programs (until I close & restart them)
(you can switch on 'Show location of Pointer when I press Ctrl Key'
under Control Panel -- Mouse properties -- Pointer options) to help with this issue.
Alternatively check under Control Panel --> Device manager to see if there are any
hardware/driver issues with your mouse
Tab, the arrow keys, space bar, and Enter can be used to switch between selections
of an active window
Alt + Tab will switch between windows
