Does anybody here know how sticky/slow mouse wheel?
Hopefully this is in the right place.
I've had the same mouse for about a year and a half or so (specifically, a wired microsoft comfort optical mouse 4500) and for the past month or so I've been noticing that the mouse wheel gets stuck at times and needs a little more force to get it moving again. The rubber band on the wheel has shredded a bit so I'm guessing over time there's been a mix of rubber and other gunk that's increased friction at times. I'm tempted to take cut the rubber and take it off and see if that does anything but I'd prefer to be able to fix it another way. I hope there's a quick and easy way to sort it out because I don't want to have to buy a new mouse unless it's the only option (mainly because I'm a tightfisted starving student on a budget).
