xp keeps crashing/switching off with mouse use

  The Old Git 20:59 25 Nov 04

When using mouse to go down or to a sub page, pc screen goes dark. Can recover only by rebooting. Seems tied up with use of IE6 or OE6. I go frantic trying to do my grocery shop on line! Mozilla firefox does it too. Any ideas?

Using XP home.

Control Panel-Add Remove Programs-uninstall mouse software-reboot-reinstall. Failing that try a different mouse.

If it's a corded mouse, the lead could be worn where it enters the mouse. Give it a waggle to prove.
