Mouse Scroll Wheel not working in Word 2007

I have a user that has a unique problem that I have been unable to solve.  Ever since the upgrade to Office 2007 his Logitech wireless mouse scroll wheel does not work in Word, yet it works properly in all other applications, i.e. Excel, Outlook, IE7, etc. We've tried reloading the drivers using the most recent drivers from the manufacturer and we've tried changing mouse settings in the control panel.  Nothing has worked.

Deductive reasoning points me to Word as the culprit but I have not found anything to back that up. I'm wondering if Word has any settings that affect how hardware behaves....dont know. Thats why i'm here :).

Thank you, in advance, for any input on this subject!

Does it work in Word safe mode (start > run > type winword /a and hit enter)? If so, then Word is definitely the problem. Have a look at this (for 2003, but the differences are minor):

If not, does it work in another profile (say, if you log in)?

Sorry for the delayed response...Yes another mouse does work (Microsoft wireless) and No, the existing mouse does not work in Word safe mode.  So i guess we've weeded out Word as the culprit.  This user is an engineer that is determined to make his existing mouse work so the solution of replacing the mouse didnt work with him.  Damn engineers j/k fellas :).  

Thanks for the input, guess I'll go browse the Logitech site for an updated mouse and/or go buy an exact replacement :)
