Windows 7: MS Wireless Mouse 5000 - Poor scrolling

MS Wireless Mouse 5000 - Poor scrolling

I have recently bought a MS Wireless Mouse 5000, and the scroll wheel seems to be a bit flakey. It does not happen all the time, and seems to be worse in some applications (for instance, Safari), than others.

Any ideas?

I have two MS 5000 but I still don't know what flaky means. First thing is to make sure you install 2 new batteries in the correct fashion. Use the little pictures inside the mouse. They will work with one battery being bad but not well. They will also work with one battery in backwards but not correct. Here is a simple test for the batteries. Install one battery and if the blue light is bright its a good battery. Then check the next one the same way. One at a time.When the batteries get really weak a little light will flash on the top of the mouse. Now when you no your batteries are good and installed properly try it again. Next thing I'm thinking of is what pages you are scrolling on. Your mouse doesn't know a Firefox page from a Safari page. Because it is a Microsoft mouse you can check Windows Updates and see if it list and new drivers for the mouse.
