Mouse absent from All Programs/Add/Remove(?)

Hello, would someone happen to know why my Logitech corded mouse isn't
listed in ALL Programs nor in Add/Remove?

I was given directions to correct something, by Logitech Support, which
necessitated to find it in the All Programs, which is absent. Yet, it's
working all right except for a little something I wish to correct.

The Belarc Advisor however, shows this (I can'[t tell which is the mouse and
which other "devices" so I'm copying everything here:

USB Human Interface Device
Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard
HID-compliant mouse
PS/2 Compatible Mouse
USB Root Hub

Should I have to download it again from Logitech site? Or download the
driver(s)?

Thanks for any suggestions. Adela

Most mice will use the default built-in mouse driver that is delivered
with Windows XP. Several manufacturers can offer an enhanced mouse
driver package, which will get listed in the Add / Remove Programs
Control Panel Applet. If you do not see a listed entry, the enhanced
drivers were never installed.

You will need to correctly download the correct Logitech "enhanced"
drivers for your mouse model.

When you bought the mouse did it come with a disc?
Did you run the disc before plugging in the mouse?
Did you just plug in the mouse and ignore the disc?
Did you just plug in the mouse because you never had a disc?

Oh thank you! I even forgot I had the CD, and yes, I "just plugged in the
mouse and ignored the disc" ... and I'm sure it will be ok. now (always
trying to simplify due to my limited computer tech knowledge). It may now
even correct the thing I had contacted Logitech support in the first place.
My good friend you've fulfilled Mother Theresa's thought. I'm better and
happier now. :blush:) Adela

P.S. I've never understood when one needs to download drivers and for what
purpose?

Hello and thank you! Your suggestion explains why Belarc shows my previous
mouse. I will now use my CD (which I even forgot I had) :blush:) and I'm sure
it will be ok now. In what cases does one need to download drivers for any
component, etc.? And downloading drivers helps those components work
better?

Thanks again. Adela
