I have 2 very similar Dell machines.
XP SP3 fully updated.
Computer #1 has been using a MS Intellimouse Optical for years with no problem. The other day the mouse started malfunctioning. The programmed buttons for “Show Desktop” and “Explore My Computer” quit working. I have programmed other choices and they work. My keyboard shortcut Windows +D (Show Desktop) doesn’t work either.
I put the keyboard and mouse on Machine # 2 and everything works. The keyboard from computer #1 works properly on #2 but does not work on #1.

The Show Desktop icon Quick Launch works properly.

I have formatted and reinstalled XP SP3 twice no help.

I have downloaded every intellipoint driver i can find, no help

Obviously a software problem?
Any thoughts?
