Don't do it.

I got in a right mess and had to clean install Vista.
Actually that was a blessing in disguise since
it got shot of all the Dell loaded crapware
but it was a right pain at the time.

Just plug the rat in and it'll work OK.

Imagine installing a Microsoft app that screws up ones system so badly that
a clean install is required! Yep, that's just the way things work in the
Microsoft world. Can you see a new Vista user, say your grannie, do a clean
install of Vista because Intellipoint trashed her system? Isn't Vista fun!
Of course, it couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Especially a guy who spends
all his time being a Vista Fan Boy. Now, this is something that I must save
and refer people to in the future when Julian starts jumping up and down
defending Vista and waving his Microsoft flag. :-)

Love and Kisses,
Doris

PS. Slowly but surely, the truth about the abomination called Vista gets
out, even if unintentionally. Thanks Julian. Now you can tell us why you
run your blog on Linux.

I have Intellipoint 5.2 which I have been using on my XP machine with a MS
optical USB mouse (2 buttons and wheel). I wanted advice and opinions
before installing it on my new Vista machine because somewhere I read that
it does not work. Thanks in advance for all advice.
