It's obvious there's a problem with your computer. Instead of addressing the cause, you're just patching over the symptom. Lots of people run these mice on Windows 7 64 bit systems, so unless you got a defective mouse the issue must be with your system.

In your situation, my next step would be: Make an image of the system (a ghost for example). Make sure your bootable media of choice works (the media you use to boot for restoring your system image). Reinstall Windows, system drivers, and mouse. (any other drivers required to make Device Manager happy). Make sure you test your mouse at each stage and make a system restore point before each installation. You should be able to do this fairly fast as you're just installing enough drivers to make the system 100% operable with your mouse software installed. Once done, make another image of this basic system. from here, if the mouse is working properly, you'll have to decide if you want to continue installing a new system, or go back to the old one and try and locate the fault.
I've had a few devices over the years that required all these steps the get working properly, and it is a last resort since it takes higher than average effort to get the problem resolved. However, if I bought a new piece of hardware I wanted to use, these are the steps I would go through if I had any problems. In some cases, it can take longer to troubleshoot the fault than to reinstall the system. In your case, you may have reached this point.Edited by Mergatroid - 4/1/13 at 8:50pm
