I just hope it stays fixed.
Hi - I tried the link but I just get a request for login details. How do I get past this?
PS I have the same problem with the mouse!

Hi Trev, which link does not work? I just tried the top one - it works and there is no sign of me being logged in.

The second one opens a hotfix page (also nothing about log-ins) - but now the links to the downloads give "File not found". I'm guessing this is not a problem - because it was a hotfix for version 9.12 (and maybe a few following versions). Now we are up to Catalyst version 10.9 .... so it probably no longer needs a hotfix (or you could say it is "built in").

Good Luck

Problem Solved!

Thanks Calypso3. It was the 2nd link that didn't work - but, as you say that is not relevant now.

I had previously visited the 1st link & downloaded & installed the driver from 'Option 2 Individual Downloads' so this time I went for 'Option 1 Full Software Suite' (which is a much smaller download for some reason I don't understand). Both are revision number 10.8.

This was just over a week ago & so far the big pointer has not returned!

Thanks again for your help - I was finding the problem very irritating!

Did you go for 'Option 1 Full Software Suite'? This worked for me but the 'Option 2 Individual Downloads' did not.

The problem has not returned for me after 3 months.
