Ive got vista ultimate 64. With a standard computer.
My problem is that I cant configure my mouse buttons.
After I install the latest 64bit mouse driver
, and click on the mouse icon to configure the mouse buttons, an error pops up that says -
'Some mouse settings might not work until you connect a Microsoft mouse to a USB port on your computer or set up a Microsoft mouse that uses Bluetooth technology'.
The problem is that I have a microsoft mouse that is
connected to a USB port.
The mouse works fine on my spare XP computer so its not the mouse that's faulty.
I tried separate microsoft mice - wheel mouse optical and the intellimouse optical, both by microsoft and both have same issue.
I tried different usb ports and same happens.
I tried the ps2 port and same happens.
I uninstallled all mouse drivers
and reinstalled but no help.
Basic left and right click works but cant configure the wheel button.
It was working a week ago, but I went for a holiday and when I came back it was faulty.
All vista updates are installed, security is the windows firewall, AVG free antivirus, and windows defender, but none of these have been a problem before.
Reinstalling vista is not an option, it takes 70+ hours to restore my comp to its working condition, I dont really have the time to do that. And im not really sure it would work anyway.
Can anyone think what may be happening, or how to fix? Im not a pro at computers.
thanks in advance for answers.
