    Don't relay just on windows drivers, see if you can get proper drivers from manufacturer. When you check for driver updates thru windows driver update, it checks only with MS data base for drivers, not in general. You can get device ID thru driver details in Device manager and search internet for drivers for it.

    Made an image with Drive Snapshot before installing JIC. Restored and tried again. Twice. No scrolling. I should have tried to re-install Logitech Setpoint. That may have helped. I tried changing settings in SP, didn't help.
    Turns out the scrolling issue was cause by WizMouse.
    WizMouse makes your mouse wheel work on the window under the mouse
    Switched to Mouse Hunter. All is good.
    Pretty strange that some WU killed WizMouse completly. It has worked for years.
