Windows 7: Mouse: How do I disable Windows drivers?

Mouse: How do I disable Windows drivers?

I have a mouse, the Razer Abyssus, which comes with its own drivers. The default Windows mouse controls seems to be conflicting with the Razer drivers. Both drivers seem to be active, and the settings available in both are similar. For example, I can control the pointer movement speed in my Windows mouse settings and also in my Razer settings. They do not interect in a predictable way, though. Sometimes when I change the pointer speed setting in one driver, the same setting in the other driver will automatically change in a seemingly random way.

Is there a way to disable the Windows 7 drivers, or limit them so that I don't have these duplicate settings?

Locate the problematic driver in the device manager, right click and uninstall: What is Device Manager?

Doesn't work. I tried it, and the mouse simply stops working altogether. Let me rephrase the question slightly. How can I adjust my system so that I cannot go into control panel>mouse and adjust my pointer speed? My mouse comes with driver software that allows me to adjust the pointer speed. I do not need to be able to adjust it in two different places, and the fact that I have basically two separate pointer speed settings is causing problems in various programs. In some programs, my mouse will move very fast, and in other programs it will move very slow.

By the way I am an intermediate level user, so I don't need to learn "What is device manager?", but thanks!
