I noticed a file mousewheel.ocx in Windows\system32 with a modification date of August 31 2008. Funny thing is I don't do autoupdates and I'm seeing this same file with same modification date in logs on forums. Anyone know what it is exactly? If I look in properties it shows a Version of 1.0.0.25 but no company name or other resource info other than "mousewheel"

I see it on both XP and Vista systems with the same mod date so it seems kinda' strange.

Stranger yet, mousewheel.ocx does not show up in any searches I have made. Usually not a good sign. Maybe someone else will know more

I can't find it on my XP virtual machine. Do you have any 3rd party mouse/keyboard software installed - such as Microsoft's IntelliPoint or Logitech's SetPoint?

Thanks for the replies. I found it. Turns out DVD Flick installs it for something or other. Must use it to flip the option drop down boxes with the mouse wheel or something like that. I removed it and installed the latest DVD Flick and there it is. :thumbsup:

Apparently DVD Flick doesn't even want to come up if it doesn't find it. :thumbsup:
Got a "no mousewheel.ocx found" and it just aborted!!! Reinstall took care
of it. I mean, I'm pretty mouse-oriented but I can't imagine what he's got
in DVD Flick that he can't leave home without it!! :flowers:
