    Windows 7 mouse acceleration fix - Need Help

    Hi All
    I found this:
    Windows 7 Mouse Acceleration Help!
    logitech 518 mouse, Mouse has no acceleration problems on windows xp.
    P.C has duel boot config windows xp pro 32 bit and Windows 7 64Bit
    My problem is kinda weird, I play Wolfenstein Enemy Territory.
    I can play for one, two or three maps with no problem at all on the mouse acceleration. Sometimes I can go 2 minutes into the first map and the mouse acceleration goes haywire. I can have it set on 3.0 sensitivity in the game control panel and if feels like its set to 20 sensitivity when it accelerates on its own. It will stay messed up till I go into game control panel and move the mouse speed to 1.0 its still stays accelerated but it is good enough to play the game, after a few minutes the acceration is back to normal and I have to go back and set it to 3.0 sensitivity and its back to the way it was before if messed up.Now the other way I can get the mouse speed back to normal after it goes haywire on the acceletation is to reboot my Computer. I have looked at a lot of posts on the problem but nothing I have tryed will fix the problem I am encoutering and no one has posted anything close to the problem I been having with the acceleration problem on windows 7. So I figured I would post my perticular problem and maybe someone has had the same issue with windows 7 and found a solution. Thanks Rene G.

    Are you using Windows driver or the Logitech Setpoint?

    If you go to this page within each OS click the Download button under the MX 518
    Then download the latest driver for XP32 and Win7 64bit respectively.

    They just came out with an update about three weeks ago.
    That may help.

Thanks a bunch for letting me know I just upgraded the software for my 518 lets see if it does the trick, I 'll try it out for a few days and I'll let you know how it went. Thanks again Rene G.

    No guarantee it will help but the only thing I could think of that MIGHT help.

    Come on back if needed.

    Well hopalong looks like the update did it, have been gaming on and off for a few days now
    and no sign of mouse acceleration, it's working as it should, I've even changed the mouse speed setting
    on the game and its stays at set speed,If I don't come back and post the problem is fixed for good.
    I know there is a lot gamers out there with the acceleration problem, if you have a logitech mouse
    go to logitech mouse utility and tick on No acceleration and on advanced options tick on OS implementation
    and add The MarkC Windows 7 Mouse Acceleration Fix for Windows 7 64bit.
