    reg editing is not my best skill.

    but the problem was most annoying.

    If I delete the sermouse.* in windows, SFC puts them back.

    If I unplug the gps so I can move the mouse, the 'ballpoint' mouse in device manager gets removed before I have a chance to disable it.

    I did not know you could add keys to the registry with regedit that simply.

    Now I will go and buy a new keyboard so you can see me talk properly....

    I couldn't find the dllcache folder on my computer.

    With my RandMCnally GPS Serial Rx, I had to do that 3 times each time the OS was installed and it stopped it.

    I'm about to try the registry fixes.

    I just did the reg fix last night for my RandMcnally serial and it seemed to work. The device manager had a serial mouse but a ! in it and the GPS RX still worked and I haven't had a jumpy mouse yet.

    I just got my new BU355 with both a Serial and USB cable set. I'm testing it now with hibernation etc...testing xport etc..I wanna go USB if I can.

    Registry fix or renaming the file eventually gets reversed (if you disconnect the GPS wire and reconnect it, windows somehow chnages the registry and/or reinstalls the driver) What finally worked for me was going to device manager and disabling (not deleting) serial mouse.

    What do you mean disconnect the GPS wire?
    The RandMcNally has a PS2 connection for power and a RS-232 connection for data to the serial port.

    The RandMcNally is serial port and the PC doesn't know if it's connected or not like a USB GPS.
    I don't see how it would change the registry if you unplugged the unit. Maybe if it was USB, then I could see...

    I have to check my new BU355 via USB and see if that changed the registry entry back.
