Default Computer mouse switch going bad

My mouse left button is getting real flakey. I took the whole thing
apart and cleaned everything. It still dont work all the time, so I
guess that switch is going bad. There dont seem to be any place to get
some contact cleaner inside of it.

Have any of you ever found a way to repair these switches?

Yea, I know computer mice are cheap, but I need a PS/2 connector and
want a ball mouse. I dont like the infared mice, and can not use a USB
mouse on my Windows 98 computer.

So, I have to order this on ebay since all the ones in the stores are
USB and infared these days.

So, until I can get one from ebay, is there any temporary fix? (The
other mouse functions work fine).

I don't mean to pick on you, but there are so many things wrong with this

Hey, I have a 91 year old friend who is blind and can't use his Windows 98
computer anymore. If you want it, its yours for the shipping. It includes
a wired ball mouse I'm sure. Heck, I probably have a few of those around
here if I dig a bit.

Oh yeah, they make PS/2 to USB adapters. They are maybe a buck.
