Well, you shouldn't do! Apart from the generic advice that when things
break in your system you should always suspect whatever you most recently
installed, there's no obvious clue that would lead you to suspect one of your
other pieces of software and indeed this is an unexpected and unlikely
interaction and really most likely indicates dubious software design on
Logitech's part. We occasionally run up against bits of third-party software
that cause problems, but more commonly that's stuff like anti-virus and
firewall software that you could more-or-less expect to have system-wide
effects. Glad it's all sorted out now!
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
