I have a Microsoft Wireless Mouse and keyboard combo, 5000.
It works perfectly, but, if I reboot my computer, the mouse becomes right-handed. The only work-around is to go into the control panel, as a right-hand user, bring up the mouse settings and click on the "Change mouse settings" link.
This brings up the Mouse Properties dialogue box. There is a link on the box that says, "Click Here to Change the Microsoft Mouse Settings"
As soon as that settings box starts to open, and it doesn't even have to open all the way, the mouse switches back to being left-handed, I close all the boxes and every thing is fine until I reboot again.
The reason that the dialogue box doesn't have to open is that it is already set for a left-handed mouse, but for some unknown reason, unless I go and open the darn thing, it won't change over.

It isn't a matter of waiting for the driver to load. I've waited a long time. It doesn't switch over unless I go through the procedure.
It works, but it's really clunky and a real pain to have to do every time.
I've gone all over the Internet looking for a solution but haven't found one.
I'm hoping that someone here can help.
