Yesterday I downloaded Adobe Reader#9 , and today the scroll wheel on my mouse isn't working nearly as good as it did before. Does anybody know if there is some connection between these two events and if so, how can I fix it?---Brian

I'd take the mouse apart and clean the fuzz out first. Mine just up
and STOPED the other day (all of a sudden). I found a ton of fuzz
all ove the perforated wheel when cleaned up worked fine. So it
may "MAY" have been a coincidence. I clean the rollers that do
the pointer moving on a regular bassis but had not taken the thing
apart to look at the wheel.

You might have inadvertently reset your mouse scrolling.

Go to the mouse menu in Control Panel, select "Scrolling" and you can change the sensitivity.

Back in the dark days when I used windoze, I ran Foxit reader instead of Adobe. It may have been Evan who suggested Foxit. Anyway, Adobe used to be pretty much a virus, dunno if it still is.

Hmmm I use my optical wheel mouse with Adobe 9 Pro with no issues:confused:

I did have a mouse die a couple weeks ago. Started to "go to sleep" at odd times. Unplugging the mouse from the USB and replugging did a temp restart. Finally, even that got tiresome after 6 or 8 times a day. No issues since I replaced the mouse though.

I had a cordless mouse for a wile, but my desk is too messy to allow a clear line of sight...

I'm tempted to try the Apple wireless buttonless wheelless mouse. No moving parts to catch cat hairs and Cheetos crumbs.


Not all functions work if you use it with Windows.

My mouse is an optical mouse, with a cord. When scrolling, it works okay for part of a scroll-then quits, and I have to drag on the side bars of whatever I'm viewing to scroll farther.

Got it fixed. my old mouse was worn out. I probably had a million miles on that old scroll wheel!!!

Use foxit insted, its 10x faster to load and view pdfs, free, no nagging, etc. just all around better. its even a small install.
