    Has anyone experienced conflicts between NOD32 and the Logitech mouse drivers?

    In my past experience, Logitech drivers have been prone to conflicts and I generally avoid using them if at all possible, relying on the basic MS mouse driver if possible. My son recently purchased a Logitech mouse for his Win98 machine and reported that his computer immediately felt slower whenever the logitech driver was loaded into memory. On a hunch, I excluded the Logitech Mouse driver directory and the problems went away.

    I repeated this on my XPH-SP2 machine and have also noticed a subtle improvement in mouse and display behavior.

    Is there a known conflict between NOD and Logitech drivers? Has anyone else experienced similar behavior?

    TIA,

    I'm using a Logitech driver from 2001! :D No problems here.

    Logitech wants to install backweb when you install one of their drivers.

    You could remove that driver and try a reinstall leaving out the backweb program Logitech wants to install.

    I used to have a logitech optical mouse, which required mouseware(9.78 ). Currently I am using Logitech G7 wireless laser mouse and setpoint(2.42.257) is installed. There are no conflicts between nod32 and the above two. And my OS is winxp pro sp2.

    I've tried NOD32 with two mice on a Windows XP computer - One mouse needed Mouseware drivers, the other needs SetPoint - and both did not conflict with NOD32 in any way.

    Thanks everyone. Looks like it just may be here on these two machines.

    Maybe the driver continually accesses some files in the installation folder. Since the "optimize scanning" feature does not work on Win9x systems, AMON scans this file(s) continually which may result in the slowdown.

    Same here....I love Logitech mice...have used them for many many years...but I've always hated their software, I never install it. The native MS driver works just fine. Same with their joysticks.

    I've had no problems here and I've installed their software.

    SetPoint is absolutely unintrusive in this regard. MouseWare, on the other hand, is a different thing. MouseWare might be accessing some files when you use the "special features", i.e. WebWheel and all such things.

    But I'm very sure that the Eset support team has a Windows 98/Windows Me computer with a Logitech mouse (come on, everyone with a computer has seen Logitech mice). So why don't you test it and find out for sure? I don't expect Eset to have a Logitech G1 Gamer Mouse with SetPoint software, but at least Eset has a "standard" Logitech mouse with the MouseWare software. :)
