Mouse wheel-zoom pan

Sometimes my mouse wheel zooms in and out and sometimes it scrols up and down. How do I make SolidWorks just zoom in and out when scroling the wheel. (Logitech wheel mouse). (SW2004). This happens in drawings, parts & assy mode.

I use an old FX Marble Trackman. While pressing the button "Draglock" button, I rotate. If I press shift and draglock, I zoom. If I press control and draglock, I pan.

I thought the "universal scroll" would have been the button, but it states "draglock" is assigned to button 3 and that's the one which I'm using.

Also verify you have current drivers (I've got 9.79). Also make sure your control key is not stuck.

What i've found with my Logitech Wheel mouse is that it works best if I set the wheel to 'Middle Button' instead of 'Universal Scroll'. Once I got it set that way, everything seemed to work just fine.

Thanks for all the tips, but what solved my problem was enabeling the "Use MS Office compatable scroll only" box and it works great now.
