Trust Wireless Mouse not working

I've read about this in several forums, and none of the solutions work...

Suddenly yesterday my mouse stopped working, sometimes it appears as an unknown device attached to a USB port, sometimes it can't be found.

I tried re-install it, but vista can't find the driver & I don't have a disk as Trust don't supply them as Vista is supposed to have drivers already.

I read about deleting INFACACHE.1 from windows\inf and reinstalling another device, then searching for the mouse, but this doesn't work.

I've also read that PS2 mice do not have this problem, but this is a brand new laptop with no PS2 ports

Anyone got any other ideas?

I'm to embarrassed to ask, have you tried new batteries (!)

It's not batteries, i've tried several mice, wired & wireless.

This seems a common problem with Vista.

My experience is exactly the same as this guys click here

...

but the solution mentioned at the bottom won't work as I don't have CHIC drivers installed.

OK

I've now just installed a brand new Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 3000, which the box claims is "Certified for Windows Vista".

After installing the software, plugging in the mouse and rebooting the mouse worked for about 30 seconds until a window popped up claiming that windows could not find a driver for your device

Back to square one. I think square two is installing Ubuntu... wouldn't that be fun, removing Windows and installing Linux because windows won't work with a Microsoft Mouse...
