I recently purchased Bluetooth Wireless 5000 laser Mouse and had problems with same and after contacting Microsoft Support [ByPhone] they advised seems a faulty unit and for me to obtain a replacement. So I upgraded to a MS 8000 laser mouse

Have just installed the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 on my XP Home OEM Windows

Had a few problems with installing same
I installed as instructed the program from the disc supplied [Ver 6.1] and downloaded [as instructed] the Microsoft latest update [I searched the internet and found no method instruction to install the update] so installed it over the top of the existing program? After this the mouse somehow would not functional all OK and on looking I found the mouse did not appear in the Bluetooth Devices?
With a normal PS2 I uninstalled the 8000 mouse program from within "Control Panel =Add & Remove" and just installed the downloaded update program. I had problems so had to repeat the install a few times
Yes, I do now have the mouse running all OK with the mouse in the Bluetooth Devices!

Note within = Control Panel - Add & Remove = I have no Blue Tooth Program listed?

Now this is the problem? I do find I have 3 [Three] Bluetooth Icons in my control panel? All identical and functional
Somehow this does not seem correct?
Your comments please?
