They solved all my problems with a 5000 mouse and desktop elite keyboard.
Thanks for your help, I'm afraid I had already tried this driver with no success.

I wish I could say the same, I have re-installed the drivers more times that you can imagine without success.

This exact issue occurs in Vista too, and I easily could replicate it on my friend's PC running Windows Server 2008 (not R2).

All the best

whether you notice this problem or not really depends on what programs you use. even with the 7 drivers scrolling is inconsistent/broken in some apps, but not others. the issue disappears only when the ipoint software is disabled. of course you lose all customizability obtained from the software - which is not an acceptable trade off.

Windows 7 Build 7068 32-bit

The final Windows 7 drivers for all Microsoft keyboards and mice will be released on June 26. You might want to wait until then.

Thanks, will do. Although on the MS site, there already appear to be final 7.0 Intellipoint drivers.

Windows 7 RC1

Now that RTM is around the corner, I just wanted to bump this thread before buying a Logitech mouse. Has anyone found a resolution to the problem? I am still having it with the final Microsoft Intellipoint 7.0 drivers on W7 RC.

Windows 7 RC1

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have tried the stable 7.0 drivers with Windows 7 RTM and the issue still exists. Looks like I'll be grabbing myself a Logitech mouse soon.

If anyone else has experienced this issue or found a way around it, please let me know :)

Just thought I'd bump this incase a solution was found over the last few months?

Well my friends, I gave in and just bought a Logitech MX1100, just playing with it now. The good news is that scrolling works flawlessly with the Logitech mouse, and hyper scrolling just rocks as does the app switcher.

It does have a different pointer feel though, which I'm hoping I'll get used to.

The moral of the story, don't buy Microsoft mice! :)

Solution for Wireless Laser Mouse 6000

The solution that worked for my Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 (might work for others as well) was pretty simple:

- Install the latest IntelliPoint software
- During setup select your type of mouse (e.g. Wireless Lasermouse 6000)
- When the setup is complete, choose "Wireless Laser Mouse 8000" in the Intellipoint configuration window (drop down below the image of the mouse)

The buttons of the WLM 8000 are the same as the WLM 6000.
You might want to reduce the mouse wheel sensitivity.
After that the mouse wheel of the WLM 6000 (V1) worked fine on my Windows 7 x64.
