Windows 7: Windows 7 and Logitech G500 freezing OS

Windows 7 and Logitech G500 freezing OS

OS: Windows 7 Professional x64
Hardware: Logitech G500 gaming mouse

I installed Windows 7 on an SSD and when I plug my Logitech G500 mouse into the motherboard, the mouse appears to work fine for about 30 seconds and then it freezes Windows 7. When I mean freezes, here's what happens:

-I can right click BUT i can't left click on icons, task bar, files, folders, etc.
-I have to switch between windows using TAB
-OS comes back to life only after unplugging mouse
-No setpoint installed

I tested the mouse on other computers and it appears to be working fine. I'm not really sure what the problem is as this never happened when I had Windows Home Edition x64.

Have you downloaded the latest drivers for it? Most mice are plug and play, but ones with additional buttons require specific drivers.
It should work as a plug and play but worth a shot.

I thought it would be the same issue but after visiting Logitech's website, they don't really have any drivers for it. All they have is that setpoint software but that's not an essential factor to the problem.
