Windows 7: Problem with MS Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0

Problem with MS Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0

My co-worker just got a new machine a couple of weeks ago. It's a Dell Precision T3500 workstation with the following specs:

- two dual-core Xeon W3530 processors
- 12 GB 1066 MHz RAM
- Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
- 320 GB 7200 rpm WD HDD
- nVIDIA Quadro FX580 512MB graphics card

The system came with a basic mouse, but the mouse being used is one that was already in place, a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0. The problem is that many times several button clicks are required just to register a single click on the screen. My co-worker is getting pretty annoyed with it. I don't see any drivers for this mouse on the MS website or the Dell website, but you'd think Win7 would already have the correct drivers for this mouse, which worked fine on the previous laptop with Win XP Pro 32-bit.

Probably the correct driver but the sensitivity may need to be adjusted in the mouse settings. You can check the driver by typing device manager in search and looking at the mouse tab. If it is listed and doesn't have a yellow triangle on it, it is working.
