Getting a Logitech mouse to work with Visual Studio

Recently my trusty Microsoft Explorer mouse broke, so I decided to invest in a Logitech Performance Mouse MX. The idea was that I could use some of the extra button to help me do stuff in Visual Studio. However, once installed it didn’t seem to work with VS. The left/right buttons and the vertical scroll worked but nothing else. The solution is to go to the All Programs->Startup folder and change the Set Point program to run as Administrator. Sure you’ve opened up another security hole but I want a mouse that works.
