Looks like you covered all the bases except one. Did you ever consider the mouse has gone bad or tried cleaning it. I would try to clean it especially around the wheel itself.

YUP, been there, done that.
Spilled wine on my Logitech mouse and the wheel died.
Took it apart twice and blew it out with compress air but still buttons ok, wheel, dead.
Never wheel when ya drinking.

Then the only suggestion I have is when drinking and driving and hit tree; you know what to do with car that can't be repaired?

Looks like about your only avenue left.

Its sounds like maybe you shorted out one of the componets in the mouse that work the reverse direction.

i usually just clean the ball and roller but i didnt realize that the wheel could be cleaned. i opened the case and found a small bunch of gook around the wheel. cleaned and working as good as new. thanks again,franco
