It well could be a Vista problem.

Whatever it is ticks me off ‘cause the mouse cord is always in the way. I’m not a computer guru but part of the problem might be the bandwidth available through the usb port, because besides the button problem it has random tracking problems. By that I mean if you move the mouse a smidgeon, the cursor won’t move, then when you move the mouse some more the cursor jumps way past – but not all of the time, that’s why I think it may be a problem related to band width or whatever else the computer happens to be doing at any given time. (I added big time RAM to my computer so I don’t think that should be the issue.)

Also, on other programs (Microsoft Money for example) the scroll doesn’t always work like it should. One of the money bugs is that the w/l mouse won’t scroll a checkbook register, but the wired does fine.

It doesn’t work well with Photoshop either.

As mentioned earlier I tried uninstalling the drivers that came with the mouse, (it worked for awhile, then went back to its errant ways), messed with button assignments, and finally just gave up. I keep it on the desk and use it for some things, but if it doesn’t feel good on a certain day I go to the wired mouse.
