I have finally discovered that it is my G7 that causes my
windows to scroll uncontrollably. It has gotten so bad that
I switched to a regular corded optical mouse.

Does anyone know if there is a fix? I use the latest driver
for XP.

thanks
do you have a metal framed desk.................or metal near mouse.

No. There is no metal to speak of around it.
Have you tried to move the receiver to a different USB port? I have a
Nostromo n52 (game pad / HID) that does that same thing in one of the four
points on the back of my PC. It is the only USB device I own which has a
problem with 'that' port.

When looking up the specs for the G7 I see that it is broadcasting/receiving
2.4 GHz, could it be interference from another device of yours such as a
cordless phone or a wireless LAN? (or a neighbor's)

HTH, Good luck

sounds like there is foreign material in the scroll wheel optical interface. You could try
and clean the inside.

Thanks, I will try some other ports.

Hmmm, can't figure out how to open it.
Many mice hide the assembly screws under the skid-pads,
or under the stick-on label.
Sometimes they use both hiding places...

DO NOT USE WATER. I would rather buy a new one for $10 to 20.

Yep, two under the rear, one under the label, and one under
the front. But it looks very clean inside, and very complicated.
:)

I guess I shouldn't run water on it...... probably shouldn't put
the vacuum cleaner near it,.... looks too complex to put compressed
air on it,.... I tried lightly blowing on it but I see no sign of dust.

There is no way to put those skid pad back on as pretty as they
were. Logitech is no help. Last G7 I ever buy.

If the scroll wheel has an optical sensor, all it'd take to upset it
is one little hair.

Wireless mice can also be upset by electrical interference, of course.

Those slidy pads look like fake fingernails, so take it to your local
beauty shop - they've got experts.

Wait till you have to fix the mouse that replaces it.
(My MS wired optimouse has just started scrolling all by itself!)
