    I need a program to lock the mouse pointer because whenever I connect my xbox 360 controller by adapter it moves by itself to the left side of the screen, causing severe headaches and dizziness when playing.

    You can disable it at programs, right?

    Why not turn the mouse upsidedown and out of the way?

    Did you try flipping the mouse over onto its back? Usually works for me.

    You could probably also download a macro program and set up a keyboard macro to enable/disable the mouse in general.

    Imagine disabling your mouse and then having to re-enable it by keyboard navigation, just unplug your clug

    PS/2 most likely then. Yeah, turning the mouse upside down is a solid, easy way to prevent it from interfering.
    You can also try to calibrate the controller.

    If you're even moderately comfortable coding you could try something like AutoHotKey or some other macro utility.

    You'd need to define the conditions where the mouse is disabled & enabled (a rarely used pair of buttons on the controller itself, set to toggle the mouse on & off, then use "BlockInput, MouseMove" as the command to change whether or not the mouse affects the cursor (the command appears to be a toggle state, so you'd only need to define the hotkeys to switch it).

    The easiest way that does not rely on removing your mouse would be to disable it in windows

    That's the advantage of using an AHK (or similar) script, you can set it up to start at boot/login, & then trigger it at need (though I have to admit, testing for connection of a peripheral, such as the Xblox controller, isn't something I know how to do, & it would probably add a little overhead by requiring the script to run a timed check rather than being triggered by an event [of course, if the problem is the controller sending a signal that is interpreted as "move mouse left", the disable portion of the script could be triggered by recieving that signal from that control, no real idea how to re-enable the mouse though]).
