    Mouse has lower DPI in W7...

    I noticed that my mouse, the Intellimouse Explorer 3.0, has lower DPI in Windows 7 than in Vista and XP. I'm certain because the drop in DPI is pretty big and easy to notice, probably like a 50% drop and it takes an extra swipe to get to where I want. There are no W7 drivers (couldn't find them online, CD says it won't run due to compatibility issues) plus I don't think that's the issue since I didn't install the drivers on Vista (family rig) or XP (lappy).

    Any suggestions on how to solve it?
