Microsoft Intellipoint 7.0 Mouse Scroll Wheel Does Not Scroll

Microsoft intellipoint 7. 0 (wireless optical mouse 2. 0) scroll wheel does not scroll (very slowly or not at all) in yahoo mail in google chrome, internet explorer or firefox on windows 7. When i am in the list of messages in yahoo' new mail, the scroll wheel does not properly scroll through the messages. It barely moves at all (maybe one line with five scrolls). Scrolling seems to work fine in all other parts of the browser. I have this same problem in chrome 4. 0. 288. 1dev and firefox 3. 5. 7, and ie 8.

I have checked the scroll settings and tried selecting the highest scroll rate and the advanced setting to increase speed when scrolling faster. This has not changed the performance at all.
This problem is new since upgrading from xp to windows 7 ultimate and reinstalling the mouse driver.
I have another laptop, no external mouse or keyboard, windows 7, and there is no problem with the scrolling (using it's touchpad, so i assume it has something to do with the intellipoint software.

Explorer Mini Mouse Scroll Wheel Problem

I seem to be having some problems with my explorer mini mouse scroll wheel. Most of the day the mouse works perfectly well, but around 2:00pm each day the mouse scroll wheel seems to stop working properly. It becomes jumpy and sometimes stops all together. Around 3:00pm it starts to work again. I've been investigating this for some time now and think it is related to the sun. The mouse rests on the table beside the window and as the sun shines in and hits the mouse at a certain angle it stops working, then when the mouse is out of direct sunlight it works again.

I've tried when it isn't working to put the mouse in the shade and it works, i've also put my other hand in front of it when it's not working and this also fixes the issue. Has anyone else heard of something like this or can this make sense, i don't know how the mouse senses the movement of the scroll wheel but if it is not mechanical but light related, perhaps this is the reason for my issues?

If you have any experience with this or have some news to stop me thinking i'm a bit mad here that would be great. Also if this does make sense and is an issue, how do i get this feedback to the microsoft r&d teams to take this into account for the v2 design?

How To Re-assign Function Of Mouse Buttons?

I have an intellimouse optical usb and ps/2 compatible. When on windows xp i was able to re-assign any mouse button to one of many functions, e.g cut, copy, paste, etc, etc. This was a standard feature of the mouse software, which was intellipoint 4 (i think), and i found it very useful. Using the same mouse on my new pc running windows 7, i cannot find this utility. Can anyone out there advise on how i can get this feature on windows 7 ?

I used it on a second mouse with only the three buttons active and one each assigned to cut, copy and paste. This avoids having to use two fingers for , and , which i find awkward and slow. Just hitting one button is much quicker when you use these three edits very frequently, as i do. Many thanks to anyone who can help.

Scroll Bar On Photo Viewer

How do you enable/show the scroll bar on the windows photo viewer? I am using two thinkpad t400, one running vista and the other is 7. On the vista machine, when i open up a large photo, the scroll bar will appear so i can go to the top or bottom quickly. On 7, that scroll bar disappeared. Is there a patch i can apply to get it back? It seems it is not in the option or settings. This is really painful because i have to deal with large pictures. And i've been going back to the vista even if i hate it so much.

Explorer And Browsers Windows Scroll Bar Issue

All windows programmes (such as browsers firefox, chrome, explorer) force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up. Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately resolve the problem. All windows programmes force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up.

Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately help. Environment using win 7 on a laptop (acer), with usb mouse. When the mouse is not used (i.e. Tracker pad is used) there seems to be a number of system freezes. We did not get these problems prior to windows 7 upgrade. The lap top is relatively new with 4gb ram.

Search Function Finds A Lot Of Stuff - How To Find Programs Only ?

When i click on start button and start typing in the search field, it finds a lot of stuff, and shows under the headings of "videos" and "documents", etc. I want the computer to show programs only, not anything else. For example, i typed "wo", i wanted the windows to show me link to microsoft word program, so i can open the program. It does, but it shows a lot of other things under the headings of "videos" or "documents" that i do not want to see, some may not be appropriate for my kids. How can i stop windows from doing this?

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.

Mouse Is Jumpy

I am using windows 7 premium with ms office home. Recently, i notice my mouse is jumpy (doesn't keep up) and the notification sounds warble (not smooth and clear sound, but broken up). A friend has suggested that there may be a compatibility problem with programs i have loaded. If that is the case i can not identify what programs are having incompatibility problems - assuming this is the problem in the first place?

Wireless Mouse

I am having trouble with my recently purchased 'targus' wireless mouse. It was fine till now, but all of a sudden i heard a beep from my laptop (similar one which comes when you plug/unplug something to a usb drive) and it just doesn't work anymore! No lights on the usb receiver which comes along with the mouse anymore!I remember the following things:1. I had installed updates from windows yesterday (but after that as well for couple of hours today it was fine)2. I got an alert for battery level and soon after i plugged in the power source i got the beep and mouse went dead in some moments. These may be irrelevant, but could anyone please help?

Erratic Mouse

Win 7 ultimate x64, microsoft natural wireless mouse and keyboard combo. I have great difficulty using the mouse. Had the same problem with a great logitech mouse which i thought was failing and discarded. To bad, it felt better then this one. Latest driver is installed. Problem slowly started manifesting in last month or so. No solutions in forums, other than to go with a ps2 mouse: which i would if i hadn't just spent $120 on this, anf if they still made a ps2 mouse that fit my hand!Do i have to re-install win 7 just like all the other windows releases over many years?

Mouse Scrolling

I recently installed a wireless keyboard and mouse. ( Microsoft natural wireless ergonomic keyboard 7000  and mouse, microsoft natural wireless laser mouse 7000) so, i installed the disk and the mouse has functions to zoom in go back to pages and vertical scrolling. So, it works good.

Then when i want to use my old mouse ( only can click, scroll and right click ) to play computer games as the wireless mouse does not fits me (counter strike cz), i couldn't scroll down to select weapons even when i use internet and trying to scroll down, it doesn't work.

But the wireless mouse is useful for surfing the internet so i do not wish to delete the program that allows the mouse to function. But drags me down during gaming.

Mouse Issues

This is a weird issue i am having. When i went to install, once i got to the install screen, the bar at the top that is highlighted flashes like its going into background and coming back out. Then it basically becomes unresponsive. I figured out it was the mouse. I used another mouse i had, and had the same issue. I disabled legacy support in the bios and got it to respond once but only by plugging it into the usb ports on the front of the computer, then it did the same thing once i got to the next window. I thought maybe it was a driver problem, so i just installed windows  using the keyboard.

Everything loaded fine. Once i loaded up the chipset, i installed the drivers for the mouse (all using the keyboard). Plugged in the mouse, and these are the issues:can move the mouse but clicking on any program icon is non responsive right click works on desktop keyboard or mouse will not work with any functions including the start button. Once i open the recycle bin, the window goes gray and becomes unresponsive. Ran memory test everything was fine this issue is weird.

Smooth Mouse

On this one video on youtube this one guy made his mouse totally smooth on windows xp by right clicking on my computer, going to mice and other pointing devices, clicking on the mouse he was using, going to advanced, and then setting the sample rate to 200. Well when i try this on vista it doesn't show advanced settings under the mouse i'm using (im using a logitech g5 laser mouse). So if anybody knows how to do this on vista please tell me how.

Mouse Clicks On Its Own

This is the third laptop i have purchased in the last month. I originally thought it was a problem with the computer. But after now just opening my third brand new computer today, it appears it is just a glitch with windows 7 since it has occured on all computers. When hovering over a link (online or off) with my cursor/mouse, the computer will click on its own sometimes; thus taking me to another page that i didn't necessarily want to go to. Not always, but just enough to be annoying. Can anyone help?
