A friend lives in an apartment and has a Microsoft wireless keyboard and a Logitech wired (USB) trackball.
Since installing a new laptop we keep getting messages that the wireless MOUSE batteries are low. But she has no wireless mouse! However a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 3000 shows up in Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Devices and Printers
Presumably this is picking up a wireless mouse at a neighboring apartment. (Hence the weak signal.)
I disabled the wireless mouse in the device manager but then still got the battery is low message. We've checked the box to no longer show the message.
The real question is whether there is some way to tell the wireless system USB receiver that a given device is NOT to be connected.
In Bluetooth terminology (which this is NOT using) I want to "Un-pair" the device.
