This has nothing to do with me! I never mentioned deleting messages! 
Must be someone else...
What I was trying to make out was why my mouse responds  when I boot, 
and then stops responding for 3 minutes after  launching 10.04 in the 
dual boot menu. The desk with all the applications is there, but the 
mouse remains inoperational for three minutes...Any idea? Is it a bug I 
reinstalled 10.04 several times.
When I boot  Win7, the mouse responds perfectly normally...
If I should not post here, let me know where I should. I found nothing 
on the forums.
Thanks a lot
