sounds familiar.....try using the PS/2 mouse driver first before you start
playing with fancy drivers like IMPS/2.  I would recommend using PS/2 all
the time unless you are some strange features.....only really applies to
touchpads.  Then again some mice don't properly support PS/2 and so you
would have to use a different driver.

Try disabling three buttons (or is it a MS -> AT format problem, got a
switch on the bottom of your mouse?).

good luck
