The software for my Microsoft Mouse has an expanded setup. A cheap mouse auto loads the wheel setup. The driver is only tested if it is properly installed and can correctly identify the hardware,

Download a new one. Delete the present. And install the new.

Steer clear of any of those magic driver checkers. At best they are useless, at worst they wreck your machine.

Have you checked that the mouse is OK?

If all else fails uninstall all mouse drivers from Control Panel/Add-Remove and let XP find it.

Hey, you are the only one who has mentioned that link to the 1950's. Nah, don't live on a boat LOL. I think French humor might be an acquired taste, possibly also appealing to UK oldies like me.

Hope you mouse issue stays away.
