Try using System Restore to take your system back to a time prior to when
this began, Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore.
System Restore is designed to restore system settings and registry back to a
specific point in time but you should always be sure your data is well
backed up as a precaution.
Assuming you have your CD function restored by this, post back with your
issues with regard to your laser mouse. No guarantees we can help but even
if you have to contact Logitech you will know the things you shouldn't do.
Installation of hardware drivers if properly written should not require the
actions you were asked to take.
Backup is a PC user's best friend
