    I bought the mouse however I can’t install the software for it, it uses Intellipoint 6.2. Could it be for VISTA? I’m running XP Pro. Found out if you left click to many times it locks up the left mouse button. Could it be counting clicks? Don’t know without the software. Other than that the two single side buttons come in handy when you want to back up or go forward and you can’t make a mistake wit these buttons. Nice smooth handleing and the dpi on the fly is really cool, ie:400 slow, 800 fast, 2000 zip, nice on the hand to
