I have an older Mac G5 Power PC, and my mouse sometimes would freeze on me for a few seconds. I have the latest driver of Mouse Works, and I used to have an extended cord, but removed that, but it is connected to a hub, and not directly to the computer, but I don't believe that this is the problem. Can anyone help?

(Mac OS X 10.6.8/wireless Kensington Turbo Mouse Pro) I Downloaded and installed twice with the same result: In the system preferences I click on the MouseWorks icon and get a message that I need to quit system prefernces and reopen. I click OK and get the error message "MouseWorks driver not found" Tried several times w/o luck. Seems to me that Kensington is no longer supporting the Turbo Mouse Pro

Same problem with the mouse flying to the top/left corner of the screen. I have an optical ExpertMouse/USB (model K64325, which is not wireless) with 4 buttons and scroll-ring. The trackball is awesome, even though there is a problem with the mouse running off when I need it. -Anyway, I really wish Kensington would fix this problem. I do think the problem is with the mouse driver, because I've installed the mouse driver on my PowerBook G4, and it does it too, even when there's no mouse/trackball attached. I can't say for certain, though; it could be the operating system or the specific mouse preference setting in OS X. If the problem is not with MouseWorks, MouseWorks could perhaps be able to do a workaround (eg. testing for this particular 'incorrect data stream'.

Abandonware 101. This software currently works for me on my old mouse and is good but Kensington stopped updating it in 2006. So any mice released by them since then are probably not compatible (I just purchased a basic 5 button mouse from them and it's Windows only) and the software may break at anytime, leaving your hardware investment in the lurch. Solution? Do not buy Kensington mice.

!!WARNING!! I own a half dozen Optical Orbit Trackballs because this hardware gem cured me and my family of repetitive stress injury in the wrist and elbow areas. Mouseworks was hands down some of the best mouse/trackball software I have used...ever. I am sure there are MILLIONS of people around the globe who would agree. For this reason their lack of support for the last 4 years is absolutely inexcusable. Today my wife noticed that Kensington had released their new software for the Orbit. It is called: TRACKBALLWORKS. This software is one tenth of what mouseworks was and... it took me almost an hour to get all of it off my computer and my old mouseworks software reinstalled. LOTS of invisible files that their uninstaller leaves behind. The worst aspect of this software is you can no longer assign settings for each application making a fantastic piece of hardware now not much more useful than a regular apple mouse. Incidentally, I have never seen any third party company install any of their software into the APPLE UTILITIES folder. This is where they installed their uninstaller. I hope Apple busts them hard for that.

From Kensington tech support: "We are sorry to inform you that the MouseWorks software is not compatible with Mac OS X version 10.6 (Snow Leopard). We have no plan as of now to update the software, however we can only suggest you to check our website for any such update on the MouseWorks software." Contrary to what this tech support person said, Mouseworks software does indeed continue to work on my Mac Pro with Snow Leopard installed. (There is something funny going on with the double-click speed which I can not quite figure out, but other than that, it still seems to function.) When you click on Mouseworks in the control panel, a message comes up and says "To use the “MouseWorks” preferences pane, System Preferences must quit and reopen." When you click OK, it does what is says it would do and Mouseworks opens.

This is a great utility that allows very flexible use of Kensington mice and trackballs, but now that Leopard has been released it is very much in need of an upgrade to take Leopard's new features into consideration (example of what I mean: one click option could now be to cycle through Spaces desktops)

I just need to say that at least for my setup, these drivers work just as they should. I've used and Kensington trackballs since the Turbo Mouse 4.0 was a new product (deep into the ADB days), and the hardware has stayed great, in my opinion. The OS X software is no-doubt still less feature-rich than it was in an OS 9 version (version 5.x I think?), and I was very worried that this 3.0r1 version wouldn't work at all for Intel Macs, from the reviews here, on VersionTracker, and elsewhere. But for my Mac Mini Core 2 Duo, running 10.4.10, with the Turbo Mouse USB it works just fine. It's as configurable & reliable as it was on my older PPC Macs. The acceleration works accurately, and the 'Slowly' and 'Quickly' thresholds are just where they should be, when I move the cursor slowly, it can really go VERY slowly, and ditto with quickly. So I just wanted to say that my results actually installing it, were very good. This, after fearing that it wouldn't work at all on Intel Macs, and thus trying USB Overdrive and SteerMouse, neither of which could do the very helpful chording feature that Kensington's MouseWorks driver can do (which adds 2 more button-functions to my 4-button trackball). So you've kept me happy Kensington, though I'd love it if you could add some speed/acceleration options for the scrolling feature of my model trackball. I've had to settle for the Control-Drag feature in the fantastic program Saft, for great scrolling in Safari. My advice is try it on your Intel Mac, if it doesn't work, use their good'n'simple un-install app included with the installer.
