JSI Tip 2006. Event 7026: Serial mouse failed to start, but you have a PS/2 mouse?

If this happens to you, you have a serial mouse driver installed, without having a serial mouse.

Use Control Panel / Devices to disable it.

NOTE: I have seen setup erroneously install the driver more times than I care to remember.
