Hi kobin, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
Thanks for reporting that!
For others, here's the direct link to the update. Tell us how it goes!

I have installed v1.07 two times, but the Properties on teh Driver still report v1.00 but i know it installed properly.
System -> Device Manager -> Mice -> Thinkpad USB TarckPoint -> Properties -> Driver says v1.00 6/17/2009
After more closely reading,
the Update is purely to the User Interface (the tab under Control Panel -> Mouse -> USB Trackpoint
Lenovo T410 WIndows 7 x64 Professional
In OUTLOOK 2007, in the Left Pane for Mail Folders, the Mouse Middle Button + Ultranav (FOR Scrolling) STILL DOES NOT WORK. I press the middle button, pull back on the stick, the mouse icon changes into a mini-vertical scroll bar, but NO Scroll Action occurs. However, For most all of my other application it works fine. In fact, it even works in the actual Mail Message pane but not this left pane WHY??
Functionality works perfectly using built-in T410 UltraNav driver for the built-in keyboard center-mouse+Pointing stick device.

Sorry to hear that . 1.07 fixed the FireFox scrolling problem for me, but apparently not your Outlook 2007 issue.

if the scrolling data from version 1.00 works in your applications, here's the hack i've been using to combine firefox compatibility with the memory leak fix from version 1.06.
step 2: make a copy of the c:\program files\lenovo\thinkpad usb keyboard with trackpoint\ directory
step 3: uninstall the driver (no need to reboot if prompted)
step 4: install version 1.00 on your system
step 5: open task manager and end the process for Skd8855.exe
step 6: copy the following files from the backup of your 1.06/1.07 directory to the new 1.00 directory
step 7: double-click the newly copied Skd8855.exe to start the application
this process melds the scrolling functionality from version 1.00 with the updated version of Skd8855.exe. i've been running this hack since i got my keyboard last year but never thought to write about it until now.
while i haven't had any known issues with this combination under windows server 2008 R2 and 2008 R2 SP1, please use at your own risk. combining these components is officially untested and in no way endorsed by myself, this forum, or lenovo.
with that said, now that 1.07 appears to give me what my 1.00+1.06 hack provided, i'll be using 1.07.
if there are enough requests, i will rewrite my instructions above with images to create a proper guide. in the meantime i hope this is of benefit to someone.

Installed 1.07, which finally resolved scrolling in Firefox (4). That was probably the most annoying one. Thanks.
I can however confirm that the Outlook Folder pane does not scroll (Outlook 2010). [This one hasnt been bugging me, but I thought I would jump in to confirm similar behavior]
A lot of software still doesnt work (as I expected due to non-standard UI frameworks). These include iTunes, Zune software, etc. Also, as expected, remote desktop does not scroll.

Same problem here:
I have a ThinkPad USB Keyboards with TrackPoint (55Y9067 or 55Y9017).
I downloaded the newest driver which is currently 1.07
My PC is a Dell Precision T3400 with Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit.
Scrolling with middle button
works nicely in Firefox, Notepad++, ...
works too fast in Acrobat Reader, Internet Explorer, ...
works not at all in IrfanView, Matlab, SumatraPDF, Dymola, ParaView, ...
I scanned my PC for tp4table.dat, but it is not present on my computer.
Maybe I will try the Marble Mouse Scroll Wheel software as recommended before,
but I would prefer an official solution from Lenovo.

anybody experiencing problems when scrolling with the USB keyboard in MS Excel?
I am using
Win XP Pro
MS Office 2003
driver version 1.07 (official from the CD)
keyboard version 55Y9011 (CZ keyboard)
I am experiencing these two problems:
FF 6.0 - scrolling down moves down the cursor (not the "mouse" cursor but a text-selecting cursor that is activated by the scrolling trackpoint - combination of the middle button and trackpoint) through the lines so at the beginning the screen does not move (until the text cursor reaches the bottom of the page) and then it moves too fast (moves down then up and so on).
- this issue might be probably fixed by inserting the about:config into the adress bar and changin ui trackpoint from -1 to 1
What is more annoying is the Excel issue:
- the scrolling works but the user does not have any control over the scrolling - once it scrolls too fast, then it does not scroll at all, then it continuously freezes, etc. Since my work is done 90% in excel and I bought the keyboard just because of the trackpoint, the keyboard is almost useless for me...
Will anybody help please? I have also tried to install the 1.00 driver version but all the links to the driver has been broken. Is it possible to post the driver somewhere?
Any ideas what to do about the Excel issue? I can even pay :-)
When using the laptop keyboard I do not experience any problems even when the external keyboard is pluged in.

Short discussion about a different problem, with solution, moved to a separate thread.

Totally new issue with my keyboard.
All of a sudden it stopped working seems like after windows updates.
Keyboard works in BIOS and before windows loads.
Now I can not get it to be installed and I have yellow icon on it in device manager.
I tried installing new 1.07 driver still device doesn't work.
If I plug it in my other computer keyboard works.
