Hi Jason and George,
Would you try this first.
    Assign the wheel button to Enter, see if the problem goes away.
    Settings, Control Panel, Mouse, ...

If that works post back, don't leave us guessing.

The problem is usually fixed by updating the drivers, the right driver may not
be manufacturer's own driver (just to add some interest). Take a
look at
for other things to try.
