is it the one that's USB by default, but then has a PS/2 convertor or vice versa?

Give me the good ole fashioned straight PS/2 anyday

My logitech optical mouse used to do that that all the time on my old computer. It doesn't do it anymore on my new computer that I have noticed. I'm not sure if its just coincidence or not, but on my old computer I used a USB-to-PS/2 adapter, and now I just run it right to the USB port.
