Wow, the scroll wheel on my Logitech is broken. The problem occurs when I scroll up in a web browser: the mouse spews out bizarre user interface events that cause a variety of odd problems, like throwing me back to prior web pages. It makes the Logitech mouse almost unusable at times.

I've hesitated in posting this message for a few years now. It seems like it should be a simple problem to solve. I've reported it to both Logitech and Microsoft (the problem is in both XP and Win2k) but no luck with that. Contacting those folks is like tossing a bottle with a message into the Pacific ocean. And, so far, I've found nothing on the Logitech website that addresses the problem. But, I know I'm not alone - a simple google search brings up another user with the same problem. Unfortunately, no fix is mentioned.

Also, unlike my prior report that was about problems with cheap mice, these Logitech mice are top-of-the line, not cheap. Now, I would say this is a freak problem, but I own several of these Logitech wireless mice, and they all have the same problem. Installing the newer Logitech mouse drivers and control panels does not help the problem. Nor does updating XP.

Update: See Logitech Wireless Mouse Scroll Wheel Solution? for possible fixes to this problem.

i knew i wasn't the only one. i bought a new mouse and keyboard today (due to the unfortunate misshap of me spilling a coffee over my keyboard rendering it near useless -.-) so i bought a wireless logitech keyboard and mouse, everything is running beautifully... apart from my mouse scroll. never had this problem with my good old, cheap, microsoft, usb mouse... i'm coming to think after reading several people have the same problem, that this problem occurs when logitech installs the software and drivers for the mouses. oh well, if anyone has a sollution here is my email "mashamonkey(at)". thanks in advance Chester

I have MX LASER cordless mouse and when I use either the wheel or the click and hold scroll buttons I get a similar issue. My symptom is that the scrolling page jumps back to the top.

It does this with any page that scrolls, not just web pages.

I'm on Vista.

just encountered this problem for the first time today.

i have lost functionality of the scroll (not the middle mouse click) and the scrolling is possessed. I have recently added a new usb device - this may be the heart of the problem

Its a complete pain in the a55!!!! Never buying logitech again, expensive yet useless when it comes to support.

Just uninstall the Logitech cordless mouse driver and it works better than it ever did! I left my cordless keyboard as is and all is fine. I wasted more than an hour with this stupidness. I'm running XP Pro.
