    I am using to machines (PCs) with 2 keyboards and 2 mouses. Is there a way to have only one mouse and a key board as I have to software to be used at one time?

    A KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch could be used to switch control between two PC's using one mouse and keyboard (and monitor if you so desired). Something like this for standard PS2 connections: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817394009
    And something like this for USB connections:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817403047

    Also, there are software solutions you can use. Here's some examples:

    Good luck!
