RE: Mouse settings reset to default every time
I initially had the same problem when I removed all my Logitech software.
But you can fix the problem by typing "msconfig" in the search bar at the
bottom of the start menu. That will bring up the systems configuration
dialog box. Go to the "start up" tab and deselect all remaining Logitech
items (for some reason, some remain even after uninstalling the program).
After applying the change (to deselect the Logitech items), the problem will
be fixed on all subsequent reboots. I returned the Logitech desktop and
bought the Microsoft Laser Desktop 6000 (59.99 with rebate from Tiger Direct
or J&R Music). Good luck.
