    Sometimes, when i press the left button, a menu pops up like it thinks i pressed the right button, it continues acting like right button until I press the right button again, then the left button acts normally....

    It sometimes gets irritating when this happens... is there any fix?

    Cool

    I'm using an older version... Control center 9.29.3.100 which work fine.

    Possibly buggy driver version? Logitech is known for crappy mouse drivers

    When I was using their 3 button mouse I had the same problem, but only after playing Minesweeper. I don't know if it is due to the repeated clicking of the right button or Minesweeper.

    I have that problem sometimes.

    However, I really doubt it's a driver issue. I think it's just a Windows issue.

    My Logitech does it under Win98 with Logitech and Intellimouse drivers. I've seen it under NT4 with Logitech and MS mice.

    Yep, I've seen it happen with both Logitech and MS mice as well.
