hi there G2G :)

now, i have a MS Intellimouse Explorer, it is NOT the 3.0 or 4.0, its the standard one, i think its called the 1.0.
the 3.0 looks like this:


the 4.0 looks like this:


whereas my mouse (the 1.0) is like this:



now my problem is, the mouse is in brilliant condition but here i am trying to run it on my computer, the buttons and scroll are fine and it connects and installs normally, but the cursor moves \'erratically\'. that is it skips and jumps all over the place if i move it around a bit faster. if i use it nice and slowly it seems fine but if i move it around a bit faster then it skips a lot and is totally unusable. now i need this mouse for several things like games, graphics as well as general use but the sensor just wont let me do those because it \'craps out\'. the mouse is in great condition and and is very clean, looks almost new.
i am using the windows drivers, i am not using the official drivers for the mouse as i could not find them with me or on the Microsoft website (it\'s a rather old model). it is connected via USB. i have tried different usb ports on my pc but i still get the same problem.
i am running Windows XP Pro SP2 and i have a MSI Intel x48 chipset motherboard (MSI X48C Platinum).

thanks a lot

EDIT: i have already tried the MS support article here: support.microsoft.com/kb/321122
