After you install a new mouse driver, you receive an error message in the event log stating that the old mouse driver failed to start.


This problem occurs because the old driver is not always disabled by the new driver's installation.


To work around this problem, choose the Devices icon in Control Panel and change the old driver's Startup value to DISABLED.
