    The moderator may decide this post is inappropriate.

    Has anyone found that Logitech's "set point" software presents software problems? I'm using a logitech keyboard (cordless desktop Wave Pro) and a Logitech Webcam (Pro 5000).

    Every time either install Logitech software and/or try to update it presents problems. It sometimes effects the registry and I occassionaly get a blue screen.

    Thanks again.

    I love there products, never use their software.

    I`v read similar sentiments stated elsewhere on the board by other Members.

    It'll be good for others to know ;) which OS you're running. That sp3 as well?

    When you say update, are you referring to the drivers or OS?

    What kind of a box you got running this hardware?

    I'm using XP SP3 and Firefox. When I use the word "update" I'm referring to updates of Set Point. I'm using a Velocity Micro ProMagix.

    Thanks.

    I have also had a lot of problems with the setpoint software to the point that I now have uninstalled it. I now use the default Microsoft drivers for logitech hardware.

    Logitech software used to reset the mouse pointer speed every time I rebooted my computer and I had to adjust it each time. I found out from web that lot of other folks are having similar issues and recommend uninstalling the setpoint software. I uninstalled it but the problem did not go away, and I later found out that the software failed to uninstall its startup service which still continued to reset the mouse pointer speed. I had to manually delete the startup entry to correct the problem. But that startup service should have been removed when I uninstalled the logitech setpoint software.

    I now avoid logitech setpoint software like a plague.
