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

 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.

 The program ran the first time, but now it doesn't. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and that doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?

 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.

 It doesn't look like there would be anything particularly different about that mouse. Do you have any other software in use that would take over what the fourth and fifth buttons do? Do they normally function as Back and Forward if you use them in Windows Explorer or a web browser?

 Hi, no other programs are running in the background. And yes, the buttons normally function as back and forward in the browser.
 I ran a quick test:

 I set the 'forward' button to 'R' and the 'backward' button to 'Control'. Nothing worked, so I restarted my pc. I then pressed the forward button into the browser, and now as expected the key 'r' was typed. continually pressing the forward button at about 1 second intervals into the browser, sometimes a click would be missed and other times a whole bunch of 'r's would be pressed continually as if I were holding down the button, even though I wasn't. The control key set to the 'backward' button did not seem to be working, when I tried pressing 'backward button' (control) + alt + del (expecting task manager to appear, but nothing happened). When I change keys the program stops working, until I restart my computer.

 Okay, three questions:

 How old is your computer?
 What kind of processor are you running?
 Is your mouse connected through any adapters or using a special port?

 1) About 2-3 years old laptop, still going strong
 2) Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @2.6GHz
 3) Connected through usb. Tried it on all 3 usb ports and still not working. The way it seems to work (slightly) on startup but then stop all together when I try edit something makes me think there is something in the background interfering? The program opens up so I don't think it is being blocked. Tested with firewall turned off, no improvement.

 UPDATE: Ok so I was looking at all the processes running on task manager and I noticed something called "pximouse.exe". I assume it is a virus of some kind, but anyways since I ended that process the mouse manager seems to be working perfectly! Very interesting. I will research more about what that "pximouse.exe" is.

 After much googling, it appears that pximouse doesn't seem to be a virus. Things seem to be working fine now, however in one instance of running the program with the side button set to alt, pressing alt + f4 with the side button caused my keyboard to stop working. I had to restart my pc. Other than that the program appears to be working correctly now. Also, thank you for the help. Have you ever experienced the keyboard stops working when this mouse manager is running?

 Occasionally the computer will stutter or lock up due to some thread blocking issues inherent in intercepting input commands, though I've tried to do my best to minimize or prevent such an event. What program did you close while testing?

 Control is one of the keys I use most often with this program. What application are you trying to use it with and for what purpose?
