Mouse Manager is a small tray icon-based utility which lets you quickly and easily set the fourth and fifth buttons on a 4-or-5-Button or tilt wheel mouse to any key or key combination you choose.

Designed for games, Mouse Manager lets you emulate keyboard commands with the click of a mouse button. A profile system lets you quickly choose between previously created key emulations through the tray icon menu.
Mouse Manager will detect clicks from the fourth and fifth mouse button (tested on IdeaZon Reaper Edge Laser gaming 5-button mouse and Logitech m325 using the tilt wheel) and emulate the repeated pressing of keyboard keys. For example, in Sid Mieir's Civilization IV you can set the Fourth button to {ENTER} and the Fifth to {SHIFT}, allowing you to queue commands holding down the Fifth button while clicking commands, and using the Fourth to quickly end your turn, letting you play with advanced commands without a keyboard.
Multiple keys may be sent at the same time, allowing you to quickly send complicated keyboard shortcuts with a single click.

Depending on the speed of your computer and the number of other tasks or background processes, the Windows message system which Mouse Manager hooks into can get backed up and will occasionally have trouble. I've tried to include as much protection against such an event, but certain Anti-Virus tools and backup utilities still cause lockups. It especially can be an issue if you have other utilities designed to modify or directly read Mouse button events.
If you want, you can set how long your computer will wait before "ignoring" the lockup using a registry value: Just create a numeric value with the name "LowLevelHooksTimeout" under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop" and set it to the number of milliseconds you want it to wait. The default value is 5000 (5 seconds). You might want to try 1000 or less.

Just awful. As soon as the program started, my mouse stopped working.

Please check your system tray (next to your clock) for a mouse icon. After Mouse Manager has been set up, it runs as a tray icon on startup instead of showing the Main window again. If you can't find it and want to completely reset your settings, Mouse Manager stores settings in the Registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\RealityRipple Software\MouseManager. You can just delete the whole "MouseManager" key to erase your settings.
