    Exclamation Intellimouse optical left side button problem.

    Hi ya all,
    Using an optical intellimouse that wont keep its setting for the left side button.
    I have it set to go "Back" which is the default setting,
    but every time I reboot or start up, it doesnt do anything.
    The other 4 buttons dont lose their setting.
    Any ideas?
    Cheers.

    XP SP2 Pro

    I have a problem with my Intellimouse.Each time I boot I loose the facility to double click off the centre button,the solution is to open the instruction thingy and close it and all is well.
    Have tried reinstalling software,still it persists,so good luck on this one

    Hey, guess what?
    I did a roll back on the driver and now it retains its settings after a reboot.
    Should try it Cicero.
    Cheers.

    A roll back on your driver,thats sounds slightly rude.
    How does one go about such an activity?

    Hi Cicero
    Rt click My Computer
    Lt click Properties
    Click Hardware tab
    Click Device Manager
    Click the + next to Mouse
    Rt click your Intellimouse
    Click Properties
    Click Driver tab
    Click Roll Back Driver.

    Assuming its got an old driver to replace the current one, everything should be sweet again.
    Good luck.
