My mouse squeaks

Isn't that a nice touch. Is it a bug or a feature or should I just get a can of oil?

Does it squeak when you left click? Mine did that too. Until I poisoned it.

No. Just when I drag it. Man, is it crap. How do I know - it has Microsoft written on it.

Take it apart and play around with the bits and see if that cures it. Mind you, getting the entrails back in the right place can be a bugger and is really messy.

Alternatively, get an optical mouse.

Blind mice are such a handful.

The only things that could squeak on an optical mouse would be the buttons or the scrolling wheel.

If your mouse squeeks - stop feeding it cheese.

Make sure your mouseballs are clean, if you have any.

Of course, the best way to clean your dirty mouse balls is to dip them in alcohol and wipe them gently.

I've got the "soak in alcohol" bit down to a T by now, I think.

I have an optical mouse, so I have no balls.
