I've got a wireless Logitech 5-button mouse. Mouse1, Mouse2, Mouse4, Mouse5 and MouseWheel all function properly, but Mouse3 (clicking the wheel) doesn't register at all.

It was working fine the other day, but then I re-synced it with a different unifying reciever and am now getting the issue, so it being hardware-related seems unlikely.

Looking at similar problems online, the solution seems to be uninstalling and then reinstalling the drivers. Thing is, if I unplug the Unifying reciever the drivers vanish from my device manager, and if I leave it plugged in the mouse drivers will automatically re-appear immediately after I uninstall it.

What should I do?

When you uninstall the drivers from the device manager you can select to delete the drivers.

Okay... did that to no effect.

Then I managed to find an old laptop to try it out on... and the wheel button didn't work there, either.

So that means it must be a hardware issue, right?

I've been using PCs since MS-DOS and this is the first time in my life I've ever had a mouse button stop working on me.
