Question about Logitech MX518 931352-0403 Mouse

Click Start, click Run, type control mouse, and then click OK.
Click the Pointer Options tab, click to clear the Enhance pointer precision check box, and then click OK.

The surface on which you use the mouse plays an important role in its tracking. The optical sensor must use the pattern on the surface to track the position of the cursor. Therefore, using the mouse on a glass or otherwise see-through surface will inhibit the ability of the sensor to track the cursor. Also, if you are using the mouse on a reflective surface, such as a mirror or shiny metal desk, you may experience tracking problems. In both these situations, try using the mouse on a mouse pad or piece of paper. By using the mouse on a white sheet of paper, you can also conserve battery life. Other surfaces that have been known to cause tracking problems are:

I Removed the USB Cord and put one from an older MX mouse. Worked perfectly

I could never get my MX518 to work properly. Without the SetPoint drivers, the mouse wheel did not work. With the drivers, although the mouse wheel worked, my computer stalled on bootup and typcially after a couple of minutes would work without error, though sometimes apps would respond only after several clicks. I have a PS2 KVM and could never get the mouse wheel to work with it (with or without the SetPoint drivers). I wandered over to the Logitech boards, interested in using my KVM again, and found this tip, Clean Boot to try and track down the issue. It turns out, the default system.ini file (which has compatibility settings for 16 bit applications) was the culprit. Of course, since this is installed by default with Windows XP, Logitech's the real culprit for not detecting this and fixing it on their product... but when I got rid of the contents of my system.ini (do at your own risk...) not only did the mouse work with PS2 (with or without SetPoint), but so did the weird stalls/freezes at bootup and everything seems to work as it should now. I had no idea my stupid mouse was causing so many issues... but all is well now:)

I was able to solve the problem by uninstalling Logitech setpoint driver and letting Windows use the default mouse driver. Here's what I did (I'm unsure which steps are unecessary, but this is what I did and it worked):
plug-in another USB mouse
uninstall Logitech drivers
plug-in MX518 again
This removed the problem for good. I'm using Windows XP home edition. Good luck!
