Right-click changing view in games? Wtf?

Alright. This is starting to piss me off. D= I'm trying to play Borderlands, but my right click acts like I'm quickly moving the mouse one direction, and it like, just snaps my view to a different position every time I right click!! It does this horribly in Borderlands, as well as some other games, but most games are perfectly fine. WTF. Anybody ever have this problem? How do I fix this crap!?

Got to ask, do you have any third part drivers installed for your mouse?

I have some crap drivers that were automatically installed with the mouse. But this doesn't seem to be the problem, because it does it with other mice, as well. It's extremely annoying and very frustrating.

Please tell us, or link us, to the drivers you installed. Also, what mouse do you have?

It's not something I downloaded, it's something that installed automatically, per my reply above. It's a 5-button Pixxo laser mouse.

The only drivers that could have install automatically are the Windows drivers... and they're definitely not crap. In fact, I find them to be better than most 3rd party drivers even though the hardware is not Microsoft. That is not to say there's something funky going on with your installation... I'm just sayin the default mouse drivers are excellent.

What happens with the Pixxo drivers?

What happens with the Pixxo drivers?
It is my understanding that when Windows automatically installs drivers, it searches Windows Update. Not all the drivers from Windows Update are from Microsoft. The drivers that were installed with my mouse WERE automatically installed, and Pixxo has no drivers for it, at least not that I can find on their website. The control panel for the mouse that installs with the driver doesn't have any branding on it, and gives the exact same options as the Mouse applet from the Control Panel, except it has an extra tab for setting what the two extra buttons do. Other than that, there is absolutely zero difference. If this is a third-party application, then whoever designed it has no brain, because there's no brand marking anywhere, and without it, I can't set what my two extra buttons do by default.

EDIT: I removed the software that was installed with the drivers that were automatically downloaded. It seems to have fixed the problem, and the two extra buttons now register as Mouse4 and Mouse5, instead of... XButton1 and XButton2. This whole thing was just entirely ridiculous. Thanks for your help, Fumz.

Good to see the problem solved.

In the future, don't use Windows Update your hardware... only use it to update Microsoft software. This requires that you change the setting from automatically download and update to check but don't download.
