    :confused:

    I've recently got a new laptop running XP and a new HP mouse. I'm left-handed so I changed the click settings for the buttons which works fine. However I also changed the scroll settings on the wheel, but XP seems to forget about this and I have to reset the scroll options every single time I boot my machine... Does my XP have amnesia?!

    When you look in Control Panel do you have just one Mouse icon or does the HP mouse have an icon of its own? It may be that your HP Mouse needs installing with its own software to overarch the standard Mouse settings.

    Some games will over-ride the mouse configuration . .
