I am thinking you may have to do a system restore to before you got the update. Did you update the drivers for the mouse for Windows 7? Sometimes the older OS drivers get buggy on Win 7. You can get the drivers for free from Logitech's website. One other thing to check, make sure the USB connector is not worn, sloppy or has a broken wire under the rubber cover. It can happen. You should be able to remove the last Win update then you will know if that is the culprit. Hope that helps.
What is the OS of your computer? This Targus mouse would work with Win 98, Win 2000 and Win XP. Vista was not mentioned. And if you are running Windows Vista for you laptop, then that could be the reason why it was not recognized by the computer.
Is this the wireless optical mouse? If yes, you need to follow the steps below to isolate the problem:
1. Connect the USB receiver into different USB ports of the computer. 2. Replace the batteries with the fresh ones. 3. Try connecting the mouse into different computer to see if you've got a defective mouse.
If you've tried everything and got the same problem, you may need to refer to the manufacturer, because I'm not sure if this mouse is a Plug-n-Play device or if it needs a driver.
If it is a USB wireless then your operating system will not need any additional drivers. The USB port takes care of that. Windows XP and Vista support almost 100% of any USB wireless mouse including Logitech..I own three of them, never had a problem. The only problem would be the USB port itself. Which is a totally different subject. You can still also go into control panel and make mouse adjustments if needed.
This is due to a missing Windows file called input.inf. The solution is as follows:
In Windows XP, you can use the MSCONFIG utility as described in the following steps:
Type msconfig in the Open field, and then click OK.
Click the Expand File button.
Type input.inf in the File to restore box.
Type the path of the Windows XP .cab file where you want to restore the file from in the Restore from box. If you don't know the patch, click the Browse From button to locate the Windows XP .cab file.
Note: The Windows XP .cab files are stored in the I386
folder on the Windows XP CD.
Type C:\windows\inf\ in the Save filein
box. This assumes that Windows XP was installed to the default
directory. If Windows was not installed to the default directory, you
will need to adjust the path to point to the correct directory.
Click the Expand button.
Click OK. If you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.
After extracting the file and restarting, try installing the mouse software again. You should no longer see this error message.

You can try to:
Right click on "My Computer", click on Properties, click on the Hardware tab, click on the Device Manager Button, expand your Mice and other pointing devices. verify that you 2 entries. One is the Sony builtin (Alps in my Vaio) and a HID-compliant mouse. The latter is your external optical wheel mouse. Make sure it does not have any red or yellow mark. Double click on the HID and verify that the next window says "This device is working properly." If not follow on screen instructions to enable or activate.
Hope this be of some help. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up or if you need further information.
