Windows 7: Logitech wireless mouse - crazy left mouse button

Logitech wireless mouse - crazy left mouse button

Hey all,

I just installed Windows 7 earlier today. The install went fine, until right near the end. I had to click 'next' to a question, which I had already done a few times, but this time the tab was not responding. I tried again and again, then finally just hovered over the tab and pressed enter on my keyboard which did the trick.

Now that the OS is up and running, everything is working fine but I just have one problem. My left mouse button is doubling up as a 'back' button. So if I am in a folder and want to double click a new folder, or even if I just left click on empty space, it will take me backwards one folder. A nightmare in internet explorer aswell.

For the time being Ive switched the two buttons around, so I have an action button, but no right click (on the left mouse button now) anymore.

Ive tried installing the original drivers, and in compatibility for Vista, but nothing seems to fix the problem. Anybody have any suggestions? Id be real grateful to hear them :)


Oh and the mouse is a Logitech LX7 wireless.

I found my problem, the scroll wheel was jammed left...seems to be working fine just now!

Could something stupid like that happened to you?

I tried my mouse on the machine downstairs and it worked fine.

I solved the problem and considering that it worked just fine downstairs, its a little suprising. At the bottom of the scroll wheel on both the left and right sides there are small buttons. They are automatically assigned to be 'back' and 'forward.' For some reason, left clicking was also firing the back button.

Using the setpoint program Ive just assigned the small button on the left hand side of the scroll wheel to have no function.

Problem solved :)

Thanks for the responses and Im glad youve fixed your problem to TyrannosuaRoss.

issues with the left mouse button
Lately I seem to be having sensitivity issues with my mouse. The left button's ability to hold is off... some clicks act as rapid double clicks or just let go. I want to make sure this is a problem with the MOUSE and not Windows 7. I've tried internal cleaning but the actual button is clipped...
