For some reason, Windows will not show the correct control panel for my mouse any more. When I first installed my mouse (IBM Optical Navigator model MO27FO) I had the correct control panel showing, allowing me to change the button functions and access non-standard mouse options). I selected the 'hide icon' option, and the next time I went into the control panel all I had were the Windows default mouse controls. An 'update driver' replaced the IBM driver with Microsoft's and killed my middle and side buttons. Reinstalled the IBM driver and still only had the Windows control panel and could not set middle or side buttons. The only way I was able to get my buttons back was to do a system restore, but I'm back to having no control over the extra mouse settings.
Is there any way to force Windows to display the proper control panel?
