It wouldn't take my mouse drivers for the longest time... Kept telling me that the ones for my old Microsoft-compatible mouse(which was a peice of crap) were good to use with my Logitech Trackman Marble (Trackball). If I get an $80 or so (I think it was probably overpriced) mouse(trackball) for my birthday, I expect to be able to use it. Though, being a birthday present is also the only reason I got Win98... I wouldn't buy it otherwise...

One of the reasons why Microsoft mice are better then Logitech ones is the fact that Microsoft Mouse drivers *work*. Compaired to the logitech drivers, Intellipoint 2.2 is the best piece of software ever written.

You can't really blame Windows for Logitech's bad software, I've never had a problem with an Intellimouse on any computer I've ever used... and thats a *lot* of computers.

>As for my advice? I say: Don't ask me for advice, because I usually end up rambling about my problems... And, maybe try usind 'DriveSpace' or something. Don't quoteme on that though. Coming from me, it'll probably cause your computer to catch fire, or melt or something...

No, you don't want to do that. DriveSpace is a disk compression tool. That would be the absolute *worst* thing he could do right now, as its quite likely to destroy a drive if its already corrupted.
