Windows 7: Microsoft Sidewinder X4 - Instant Viewer Too Fast, Makes me Furious

Microsoft Sidewinder X4 - Instant Viewer Too Fast, Makes me Furious

I'm searching everywhere, no luck on M$ support. My keyboart funciont of the instant viewer is out of control.
When I try to use it, the screen changes so fast, I can't even use this function at all.
The drivers are all up to date, it's the only keyboard installed on the machine. All other functions work fine.
What can it be?
Thank you!

too I use the sidewinder x 4 and the much better(in my view) the x 6 and the software I find needs updating form time to time and even reinstalling.
Now just as matter of interest there are also Windows updates for these devices too so have you had any recently or done what I have with my KB's?

This is the site to use my x 6 is served by the Intellpoint and the x 4 by the Mouse and Keyboard Centre

What is the difference between Intellpoint and Keyboard Centre?
I use Keyboard Centre, and Intellpoint I tried to install but it says it has a newer version installed.
I looked for in the keyboard centre and I could not find a way to customize this.
The change of screens is way too fast.

Hmm a new one on me too I installed the Intelli stuff quite a while ago when I bought the x6 SW - it is something you cannot get anymore out here at least which is a shame because out of the two the x6 has it hands down over the x4 in both features and the key pad design - I like them flatter and the slightly raised ones on my x4 I am not keen on plus it is slightly larger and the NUM pad can be placed at either end of the main KB .
Now to get back on track the Intelli stuff comes though in my Windows updates and I have reinstalled it a couple of times now and I am guessing it is updating to that newer version you describe.
What the keyboard centre is I shall have to look up so I cannot comment on it right now.
I shall be offline for most of today in case you post back but will check this evening.

Ok too I have had a quick look and this is what I get for the keyboard centre for Windows 7 the very latest is the one fro Windows 8. Download Mouse and Keyboard Center 2.0 (formerly IntelliPoint and IntelliType Pro) from Official Microsoft Download Center
It clearly states it replaces the other stuff I mentioned though I have had no formal notice from Microsoft either by updates or info on reinstalling the Intelli stuff that I should be using the keyboard centre software and I must thank you for making me aware of it otherwise I would have been none the wiser
Pretty bad form from Microsoft in my view as it may have explain why I have had problems with the Intelli stuff after I have reinstalled it as I said a few times now.

Maybe this will fix your problem maybe not but worth try.

My version is the 2.3.188.0, I will try to reinstall it to see if it fixes it.
Strange that I look for this version on the Microsoft website and nothing comes up, only the version you posted there.
Thank you for your help! I'll post if it fixed the issue.

It didn't solved, same thing, and now the icon is missing.

Yes too this is the original version I found and I found the 7 version by just typing for 7 in Google
Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center | Microsoft Hardware

If the icon is missing then I would suggest you run these just to check your system first

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html < use the /f and /r options in Option2 if necessary

Now just out of interest what do you use to clean up the system and do you defrag the machine at any time?
If these do not work then we might just have to do some scanning for malware as well if you haven't already.

I use CCleaner and as protection I'm using Kaspersky.
I thought that this function would be very useful, but never worked for me, everything else works just fine, programable keys, record macros.
Strange that I saw on youtube a guy using this function perfectly on a non microsoft keyboard.
I give up, I'll keep changing windows the usual way.
Thank you for your help!

Hmm too I ma a fellow Kasperskyian - what version are you using as I have been through five versions now and the latest 2015 is by far and a way the least intrusive of them. Plus the GUI is far more user friendly and maybe it is Kaspersky not wanting to play with what you want. It has happened to me before.

Now if you want to try the 2015 you can still use the activation code you have for say the 2013 or whatever version you are running. All you need to do is download the 2015 application (I use the trial download they tend to pester you a bit re it running out of time but I just email them saying it is activated and they leave you alone) and store it where you can find it uninstall the current version - keeping your settings and then install the new version from the storage site - I keep my downloads in an icon for Downloads on my desktop.

Wow! I didn't know that! I'm using the PURE 3.0.13.0.2.558 here.
I'll try to run it latter without protection to see if it changes anything.
The PC runs so much better without protection, until it gets infected of course, hurts me a little to have to use it.
