You have probably tried this (is this what SVSIRIUS suggested?) - but this is what I got from my FUGAWI software people:

"This happens because you have your GPS turned on when you start Windows - Windows is reading your GPS and it thinks it is a mouse - you can avoid this by turning on your GPS after you boot Windows."

I hope you get a fix on this - it is a major pain when things don't inter connect.

Okay - got it! SVSIRIUS - you were right after all - the key to it was I had to disconnect my WI-FI antenna before I turned the computer back on. Who knows why??? Anyway, then, I connect the GPS, turn the 'puter on, wait... wait... wait... then turn on the GPS, the Cap'n Voyager - and it finds the GPS right away. Then, I can plug my Wi-fi antenna back in and I'm good to go. I was looking for a high-tech solution - updated driver or something.

Thank you all for your responses.
