    You have a beta version of Windows 7. The full program is available. Because you can't use Windows Update, this may be contributing to your problem

    In your specs it says Windows 7 beta 1. Windows 7 has been out of beta release since early 2009 so why are you still running it?

    thats the solution i will replace it and add some cash to buy the rat 9 and i just can't imagine my self with a mouse different than rat 7 or 9.

    I had one of madcatz keyboards break on me, they sent me a new one within a month (slow *** process but an $80 keyboard)

    I actually didnt know it was a madcatz keyboard, otherwise i wouldn't have bought it but it works great.

    The point i'm failing to make is e-mail madcats see if they will do anything for you (depending on the age)

    i just used it for 4 months it realy got me frustrated and i read on the web that the problem is because of the twin eye sensor provided by philips is bad and the rat 9 is fixed lets hope.

    Before you spend a dime contact madcatz, tell them what you've found and what your problem is. CHANCES ARE they will send you a rat9. the keyboard I had was a saitek cyborg 7 or something like that, they said they had all sorts of problems with that model and sent me the latest Madcatz Modern Warfare 2 Keyboard. Which it's the same thing but with better components. Just try it out, maybe save some dough! Madcatz IMHO has really turned face from last time I used their products in the 90's. I think they've come a long way and I think it started when they started making professional grade fight sticks.
