Windows 7: Microsoft Touch Mouse w/ no gestures on Win 7 Pro

18 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 64 bit Professional
Microsoft Touch Mouse w/ no gestures on Win 7 Pro

I have a Microsoft Touch Mouse that I absolutely love. It mainly get used on Windows 8, but I like to move the USB dongle between different machines.

I just got a Windows 7 Pro machine at work and initially the mouse worked just fine. Then the other day it went south on me. The gestures quit working and I lost the flicking feature in vertical scrolling, that is it normally keeps scrolling a document after I quit moving the finger. It quit after I tried to make the mouse driver (ipoint.exe) run as an Administrator. Even after removing ipiont.exe elevated permissions, the gestures simply don't work. This is after multiple reboots, etc.

I have a need to run Visual Studio 2010 as an Administrator in certain cases, but it messed with the mouse. I did the same thing on a Windows 8 Pro box, but I was able remove the elevated setting on ipoint.exe, and the mouse stills works with the gestures. But I haven't been so lucky on my Windows 7 box.

I went to a different user account and the mouse gestures work just fine. I'm considering starting the machine in safe mode, loading only certain drivers. I've even considered creating a new user profile. The machine is on a domain at work, so that might have to occur on the domain controller.

The Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center is the installed software for the mouse.

Bottom line: I want my favorite MS touch mouse working on my work machine!
