Mouse Woes (New Driver -> Buttons Different)

I just updated my mouse's driver (it's an IntelliMouse Optical) because this driver program prompted me to (it's an official program, so don't worry about that). I installed it, and restarted, and now whenever I click the middle button (scroll), a completely different screen comes up that shows all my current windows:

Spoiler:


I want it so that whenever I click that button, that dial appears that allows you to zoom and up and down the page appears. And in Firefox, when you click on a link with the middle button, it opens the link in a new tab. I can't change it, because the Microsoft Mouse program doesn't allow me to change the button functions; it's as if the program installed is for a completely different mouse. =.="

Any tips or solutions? I tried to reinstall the mouse driver, but that didn't really work out (lost control of the mouse ), so surely there's a more intelligent person out there who knows what to do!

Jam it back in, in the dark.

I use the IntelliPoint software for my mouse, and in the Mouse control panel, there's this tab:


The highlighted field should let you change which mouse you use, so make sure that's set to the correct one. Once that's done, set your 'Wheel Button' to 'Middle-click'. That should do the trick.

How ya doing, buddy?

Ah, but that's the problem. For some reason, the control panel that I now have after installing the driver is completely different.



See how I can't designate different buttons, and how the mouse picture isn't even my mouse? I don't even have an option to change the "Connected device", which is really confusing me.

This thing is sticky, and I don't like it. I don't appreciate it.

Just a bit of an impatient bump. This isn't really an urgent matter, but it is somewhat irksome. =/

That's strange... You still have the default Mouse panel like that AFTER installing the IntelliPoint software?

I was speaking idiomatically.

How 'bout plugging your mouse in a different slot?

What kind of toxic man-thing is happening now?

Hmmmm...

Is this a recent occurrence? Maybe if it's quite recent and you didn't make any other changes, you could just do a driver rollback and/or a system restore?

(See, drivers are silly that way. Generally if they ain't broke, don't bother fixing 'em.)

What, you don't want my bikini-clad body?

I tried to do a driver rollback, but there wasn't anything to roll back to. =.=" And I'm not sure how to go about doing a system restore, could you give me a little info? Make it simple, though!

I can't even reinstall the driver because without the driver installed, I can't use my mouse to operate around to reinstall the driver. Quite a predicament!

Jam it back in, in the dark.

Your mouse should work if you use the standard Microsoft reference drivers. If it doesn't work, when you plug it into a different USB slot it should auto-detect it and install drivers that'll make it work.

Also, is the Intellipoint software listed in your Add/Remove Programs list? You can try taking it out of there and reinstalling it to see if that'll update that Mouse Properties window.

There's nowhere I can't reach.

=O RacinReaver you are the god of simple solutions! I can't believe I didn't do that before...I just uninstalled the Intellipoint software from the Add/Remove Programs list, and even though the mouse control screen has ceased to exist, my mouse is working just like it did before! I think the software/driver I updated must have abolished the function that I always used, and replaced it with that fancy high-tech multi-screen thing.

Oh well, thanks RR! And to all who posted in this thread! I'll be sure to leave my mouse drivers alone now.
