Windows 7: Cheap fix for a nagging mouse problem...

Cheap fix for a nagging mouse problem...

My Logitech M315 still works great, but the little round glider pads came off, so it was "running" a bit rough. You can buy replacement pads, but the cost is prohibitive for a lower priced model such as the M315. However, I've found a neat & sweet fix: shiny cellophane tape. It works like a charm. The mouse now glides like new. Hope this low-tech tip will come in handy for my fellow forum mates.

If I might add to your post spencer1..
Double sided tape w/out the protective layer removed also works great. Verrry slick unless of course you happen to peel away the protective layer, then you're even worse off than when you started.

Good tip, thanks Dimzin. I almost bought a new mouse, but then the slick tape idea occurred to me out of nowhere. I don't know why I didn't think of it before lol.

Adobe Flash Nagging
I'm running Windows7 RC1 64bit. Most internet pages want me to download Adobe Flash Player. I suppose no one has told Adobe that they don't have a 64bit player. So, whether I say yes, download it or no, don't download it, the nagging continues. Any suggestions for stopping it?
