Hi all.
I needed a spare mouse and dug one out of the closet. It's an old 4-button mouse with no identification that I bought for a computer that is long gone. Buttons 1 & 2 work. The only info on the tag on the bottom says: COMBO Mouse, serial no, FCC number and a SKU number. Nothing comes up in Google.

Anybody know a way to get a driver (or write a driver?) so I can program buttons 3 & 4? I remember it was real handy to have a "page down" and "page up control on the mouse so long ago.

This isn't an emergency- I took the mouse I usually use into work to see if it would help my carpal tunnel flare-up (at work I have the standard Dell mouse and my regular is a real fast, small MS notebook mouse that takes no effort to click), and the kids lost the ball from my regular backup mouse. But it's nice to have a backup for the backup!

Thanks.
Batya
