Normal PC serial poprts are RS232 ports, whereas the VFD needs a RS485 port. If you look back through this thread you will see some discussion on various options for converting from RS232 to RS485.
Or, just google or ebay RS485 converter

The VFD uses RS485 and the interface from your PC is RS232. They are incompatible.
You need to either add an RS485 DB9 card or just use the USB interface to drive the RS485.

Sounds like you need an EMI filter on the incoming power to the VFD, although if the mouse is your only issue, I'd try a different mouse first. A mouse is cheaper. It might just be that you have a poorly shielded mouse!
You can get EMI filters on ebay

Yes, I think some are better than others, the one you mentioned is only 6 amps, which may not meet the current requirements of your VFD, try this one

I recently bought 2 similar than these from the states and paid about $40.00 each, so this is a good price, and is designed for an AC drive.

If you are unsure about the wiring, get a sparky :)
