Disable Serial Mouse in windows 7

Answers

  • Hi,

    For COM port, we can use the following method to disable the auto detection in registry( remember backup your registry):

    Add or edit the following registry value:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\ACPI\PNP0501\1\Device Parameters]

    "FirmwareIdentified"=dword:00000001

    "PortName"="COM1"

    "PollingPeriod"=dword:00000000

    "SkipEnumerations"=dword:ffffffff

    But this is not only for serial mouse. Meanwhile, you could refer to the following article for a look:

  • Thanks,  I eventually did this

    Run - gpedit.msc

    computer configuration \ administrative templates \ system \  device installation \ device installation restrictions

    prevent installation of devices that match any of these device ID'

    Enable

    Device ID : PNP0501 ( is that correct ID ?)
