Why does my Microsoft BlueTrack mouse work almost nowhere?

Microsoft advertises their "BlueTrack" mice as being able to work on almost any surface, with only a few exceptions (mirrors and glass, if I remember correctly). But mine works on almost no surface. [more inside]

My computer doesn't like my mouse!

Recently (and I know its obnoxious to not be able to pin it down to a single event), I've been having an issue where my Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer USB (It's optical) will freeze up for a few seconds and then start working. It seems that my XP machine thinks it is being disconnected, as I heard the sound cue for hardware being removed, and then 5 seconds later the re-connection sound. The thing is, I've had this issue before, and I believe it was resolved with a registry hack, or uninstalling a bit of software, I just can't for the life of me remember which. [more inside]
