disturbing problems with my logitech wireless mouse

i have the logitech mx700 mouse, it has worked fine for a long time. i don't remember if i installed it with the logitech drivers or if i just plugged it up and let it go, but. a long time ago it would try to run the logitech mouseware program in the tray, and that annoyed me. also when it would run the scrolling was very choppy and it actually ran better without installing the mouse at all, and somehow i got it to use the forward/back buttons on the mouse and the mouse wheel just fine without the logitech drivers, they only messed it all up.

THE PROBLEM i'm having now. a few days ago i created a new user profile on my computer. i noticed the mouse accelerated very fast and it was out of control. i went to try and change it, but i didn't know what MY profile was set to, so i switched accounts to mine then back to the new one. they had the same settings but the new one was still way faster. i tried slowing it down and speeding it up to try and get it to work right. no luck

so then the EM-EXEC mouseware program always ran. when it's running my mouse buttons work right (like the forward/back browser buttons) but my mousewheel scrolling is HORRIBLE, when you scroll it it takes FOREVER, jumping about a line a second. so i ctrl+alt+del the damn thing. now the forward/back buttons don't work.

makin me mad. right now the program is disabled and not running. whenever i go to the mouse properties it runs till i ctrl alt del though.

BUT NOW when i scroll and i have windows media player running, the sound pops, skips, and makes funny noises till i stop scrolling. it also seems like it's freezing my whole computer up when i do it.

i don't want some mouse program to run and manage my mouse with. i want it to run the browser buttons and mousewheel right without running any program, like it has ben since i installed the mouse a year ago. it was only till i created this new profile that it all got screwed up.

No Expert. Is IT Possible for You to Explore C: and Find....

Old Profile File then copy + paste it where the New Profile resides (replacing new one)?
Would a system restore to before this began help?
In passing most current Logitech drivers now include Backweb foistware. Search of Files & Folders will find only 4 of the 57 found & removed by Spybot Search & Destroy 1.4. Backweb is capable of ''upgrading'' (LOL) their software(&spyware) without your knowledge or specific permission. possible source of behavioral problems. Spyware often affects mouse behavior. Free & available here:
I would try sys restore first. Then Spybot. Then I try adjusting the mouse sampling rate & the scroll rate up to 2 or 3 lines instead of one.
Personally, I'm not wireless but when I have mouse problems (XP Pro) I occasionally completely un-install mouse drivers from hardware manager, shutdown,unplug mouse, reboot,plug in mouse, & hard re-boot from buttons on front of computer. This brings up MS Plug & Play which ''discovers'' my ''NEW'' hardware (mouse) and re-installs MS drivers. If your using "secondary" drivers, Hdwe Mgr also has a "roll back drivers" button which will re-instal previous drivers.
Since XP is designed to be compatible w/ wireless I suspect it has such drivers built in. Possibly you may need to un-install Logitechs which might over-ride MS's?
As I said, I know little of wireless but maybe something above will stick. Good Luck! Happy

Eh, been a while

In reply to: battery and driver

Kinda forgot about this post. But anyway, just to let you know the mouse just started workin better one day. The forward/back buttons work, it scrolls right, and the speed is right, all without running the EM_EXEC program. So my logitech mouse is running just fine without any logitech drivers, like all my logitech mice have done.... even when enraged nerds tell me it's impossible.
