    Any old Windows users around here that know what is available on Windows that is similar to Steermouse and USBOverdrive? The Mouse control panel in Windows doesn't have acceleration or inertia on the scroll wheel, it only has control for lines, 1-100 or page up/down and this isn't ideal. Also there is no ability to disable extra mouse buttons so i'm looking for a 3rd party utility with these controls.

    SteelSeries Sensei RAW, does it matter? It has too many buttons and the scrolling in Windows in unbearable.

    Yes, so I could direct you to the proper support page so you can download the Windows software specifically for your mouse.

    They have a Mac driver for the Sensei as well.

    Otherwise if the actual drivers don't do what you want, the only other alternative would be X-Mouse Button Control. Since this program is not a driver like USB Overdrive, you might need to have the Steelseries software installed anyway in order for the program to recognize everything.

    Their software doesn't have the same control as SteerMouse or USBOverdrive.

    Then unless you try X-Mouse Button Control (linked above), you're pretty much out of luck.
