    For some unknown reason my Logitech G5 mouse will not recognize its assigned keystrokes within the game Battlefield 2. They have worked but suddenly stopped.

    Keystroke assignments are:-

    Scroll wheel DOWN = Button #1
    Scroll wheel LEFT = Button #4
    Scroll wheel RIGHT = Button #3
    Front side button = Button #2
    Back side button = Button #NUM2

    The mouse is working fine if I use the keystrokes in Notepad and even use the mouse within Battlefield 2 on my other computer.
    I have downloaded the latest driver software from Logitech, uninstalled both the software and Battlefield 2 and re-installed them but the problem remains.

    I am now lost as what to do next. Any ideas please.
    I appreciate any replies.
    Thank you.

    A quick update.....I still can't sort it out, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    I have created another account to see if it was a profile problem but that didn't work either.

    One more thing, this has happened since I installed Vista Premium over a fresh install of Windows XP Pro. Could that cause issues?

    I do have the latest Vista Setpoint software installed!

    Just in case anyone was interested in this problem, It is now solved.
    I hadn't ticked the box in the Setpoint software that allows it to Run as Administrator.
    When I start the PC up now I have to open Windows Defender and allow it to run, is this normal or can I alter any settings so it WILL run on start up?
