    Split from this thread. Hello , McQuistans at HomeWelcome to Microsoft Community. Sorry for replying so late.Before we determine this is a Windows bug or not, I suggest you try again this mouse on another PC with Windows 10 latest version. If you encounter the same issue, I'm afraid this is a problem with the mouse indeed, since the Windows 10 are the same.Feel free to post back if you have any other concern.Best Regard,Yuhao Li Microsoft Community Support SpecialistThis is a windows bug, I have had exactly the same issue for over a year with a new Intellimouse Pro.

  2. New Microsoft Pro IntellimMouse causes switching between user logins to freeze taskbar

    This matter has come up before, at that time focused on a 3rd party mouse, and hence dismissed as a non MS problem.

    Not so.

    My PC - Windows 10 latest updates - no 3rd party software, new clean build.

    Switching users with new Pro Intellimouse causes long login and frozen taskbar on second account.

    Revert to original Intellimouse and problem goes away.

    100% repeatable and reproduceable.



    Tried all available fixes - finally clean rebuild - same problem.

    Previous discussion 'Switching between user logins freezes taskbar' - a contributor suggested that it was because a 'lights.dll' was invoked and that it looped.

    Whatever - MS please fix - your Op system, your mouse, your drivers, clean install - no 3rd party components.

    Thanks

    Switching between user logins freezes taskbar

    I upgraded to Windows 11 as well, but the problem manifest itself in a different way now. Taskbar doesn't freeze anymore, but my entire system freezes completely within a couple of minutes of me switching users and I have to hard reboot. Once I disable the usual HID device, it's all good.
