MS Wireless IntelliMouse 2.0 pointer direction reversed (up/down)
Somehow the cursor direction of my Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer 2.0 has reversed - when I move the mouse up the pointer on the screen goes down, when I move the mouse down the pointer on the screen goes up. The left/right motion is still working properly - any ideas on how to fix the up/down functionality? It was working fine until my 8 year old nephew got on my computer and started messing with it...

Download the latest Microsoft Mouse Software from http://www.microsoft.com/hardware and install it. It will give you the option to set the software to match whichever wireless mouse you are using, and from there, you can get your default button assignments back.
