Windows 7 & MS X8 SideWinder 'click' lockout RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking to get some attention and feed back for an on going trouble many have been faced with.

    Heres my problem:

    I'm using Windows 7 RTM x64and a brand new SideWinder X8 mouse with the IntelliPoint 7.0 x64 software(was required to download it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/DownloadResult.aspx?category=MK&type=Mouse&name=3HA-00001&os=Win7_64&lang=en).  The problem is the mouse randomly is locking up, by this I mean, I can still move the curser, but cannot 'click'/select anything...even as I type this it occured once.  I've been using the RTM since its release and the Betas/RC before that while using a Optical Logitech mouse with zero problems.  I recently just purchased this mouse (I've had it for approx 5 days) only to find a few days later without prior issue, a probelm to arise at startup and durring usage of my desktop.  To make things more clear, if I discontinue use of the X8 and switch back to my Logitech, using the same USB port, the problem no longer persists.  I've tried to uninstall the Intelipoint software, clear the registry, folder etc to no avail.  This ctrl-alt-del obviously was my first thought since I couldn't click anything and has proven to be the only solution thus far, sad.

    That would be great if we could get some reps/mods to respond to this thread with some fixes/theories....at the very least.

    Here is another thread for reference, which I'm experiencing aswell.
