I have never had a need for this one, but it doesn't exist on my system (XPSP3) so I would expect it comes with the drivers for the mouse (only a guess now)

I would look for a driver package to suit the make and model of the mouse you have

The file is available on the net for download (if you trust it) but most sites want paying for it

This is what makes me believe it should have come in a driver package for the mouse concerned (again using logic not first hand knowledge)

Good Luck

Baudy! :)

This file is on my system (XP-SP3). I've attached a copy.

Unzip to this folder: C:\Windows\System32\Drivers

I took the time to verify the hidusb.sys file that phillip22 posted. Its size (10368) and MD5 checksum (ccf82c5ec8a7326c3066de870c06daf1) match the report on checkfilename.com for Windows XP Service Pack 3 files. Best of all, after it and mouhid.sys were each added using the Found New Hardware Wizard that launched when I plugged my new mouse into a USB port on my running Windows XP Home SP3 system, my USB optical mouse worked immediately. Thanks Phillip!
