Angry Vista Mouse Acceleration in games...

This is driving me completely nuts and is making Vista a lot more irritating than it has to be.

For some reason, all of the games I have played in Vista have mouse acceleration enabled, even though its turned off in setpoint and in windows.

What this means is if I move the mouse 3 inches slowly I can do a full turn in a first person shooter. If I move the mouse 3 inches quickly it will do 1.5 or 2 turns. This makes it nearly impossible to aim accurately, especially since I've been playing games with acceleration off for as long as I can remember.

I've checked Logitech's forums and I've done google and yahoo searches with no luck. In fact I only found one thread on some CS:S forum mentioning this problem with a few posters saying they had it too but there was no fix.

I guess the old mousefix.reg file that worked in XP no longer works, but I haven't tried it (it'd probably just break something else).

I'm curious as to how anyone is playing any competitive games in Vista with this crap turned on...?
