DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

10/04/03: Microsoft Intellimouse Driver

Tech Support Pits:
From Soni=== Dear Webby, You once talked me into getting an Intellimouse Explorer mouse and warned me that eventually the cable would break. After about 3 years of heavy use it did. My grandson shortened the cable a foot and soldered the new ends into the mouse and for now it works. However, it definitely reminded me that about 2 years ago I had picked up a wireless version of that mouse when it was on sale at Staples. Unfortunately it was in a big, huge and klutzy box, which I promptly used for fire starter. The driver CD got lost in the meantime. Where do I find the drivers? Soni Dear Soni The drivers are at You don't even have to save them onto your computer. Just select the right mouse and Windows version and language, then chose OPEN. That will install the driver. After that, unplug the old mouse and plug in the receiver of the new mouse, and it works without even rebooting. Yeah, I had done the same. Bought the wireless version on one of my travels, promptly threw away the huge, near empty box, and heaved the mouse in with my dirty laundry that I keep mailing home, so that I can travel light and slip through customs easily. By the time I get home, my laundry and souvenirs are already there and waiting for me. The wireless Intellimouse Explorer sure is a treat to use! Have FUN DearWebby
