The right and left buttons are controlled by a switch you need to replace the switch

My right click is not working??? everything else works...can this be resolved before its ruled out broken??

You can go to Control Panel > Mouse and there will be an option for you to swap mouse buttons. Try that and see if your right click still works (as a left click) after you swap it. That should confirm your case.

MS Wireless IntelliMouse 2.0 pointer direction reversed (up/down)

Go into the control panel and click on the mouse icon and see if you can change to settings back to normal.

If not then check under your start menu and see if the intellimouse software is installed there and go into it to change the settings from there.

Couldn't find the answer to the right click mouse button not working.

Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Wireless Intellimouse Explorer Not Working.

Normal 0 Normal 0 Recheck the magnifier to see if its set right.
Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons. In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud

Mouse Has Quit Working All Together. Help!!

I had the same problem with my Microsoft Intellimouse 1007 (Explorer 2.0) Tried various solutions (reinstall/update drivers). In the end I went into the board bios and found that enabling the motherboards 'USB mouse' controller and 'USB keyboard' controller solved the problem. Hope this helps.

Having experienced the same problem with (2) Intellimouse Explorers I analyzed the problem and found a solution after driver updates failed to correct it.

Remove the single screw inside the battery compartment, lift off the rear portion of the mouse top cover, then gently lift up the back end of the remaining shell.

Once you have the inner workings exposed, use a Q-Tip to dab rubbing alcohol on the right click button's micro switch, manually clicking it a couple dozen times to clean the button's inner workings. Do not work about shorting out the mouse, as alcohol is non-conductive, and non-corrosive. It will not harm the electronic circuitry.
It doesn't hurt to do the same for the left click micro switch and the side button switches as well, as long as the mouse is disassembled.

Next use a clean Q-Tip to clean the edges of the top & bottom housing. This is the most likely cause of the right click button failure - there are small particles of debris lodged along the edge where the travel of the right click button is supposed to depress, but cannot.

Next, turn the top cover over and move the catch on the right underside forward and push it gently downward to uncatch the edge of that latching clip. The click on the left underside is a bit more complicated and requires a gentle lifting of the rear pins and moving the left clip more to the left and downward to release it from it's locking position.
Once you have freed the actual button's cover from the rest of the top cover, clean it thoroughly with a Q-Tip swab soaked with rubbing alcohol.

While the works are exposed, check for hair and debris around the scroll wheel as well. The small plastic wheel cover lifts off starting from the read and tipping up and forward.

Carefully reassemble all parts and hte right click function should now be restored. The debris has been removed and the right click now has it's full range of travel restored.
