I've got G25 Wheel, Force 3D Pro, Extreme 3D Pro Joysticks and MX Revolution Mouse. The OS was updated to Windows 7 a month ago.
Recently I've got a problem with Logitech Gaming Software. All my gaming devices were detected by Windows properly. But when I tried to run Logitech Profiler I got the message "Logitech Profiler was unable to detect any game controllers".
I've spent almost two days to settle this behavior. I searched for the solution at several forums and found many similar complaints and very few solutions. Any solution found didn't work for me. I tried reinstalling software several times, updating drivers manually, changing BIOS settings for USB controller, deleting calibration data, deleting some Logitech software folders that remain on the disk after uninstallation, connecting devices to other USB ports, disconnecting/connecting devices at various stages of uninstallation/installation/booting... I could have tried something else but I don't remember by now . Probably the most serious problem was in the driver files which kept their old versions and some where not installed at all after all the manipulations.
The solution. It was not too easy, but at least it worked for me. I've totally removed all the Logitech software and drivers and reinstalled it from scratch. If you want to try this method be very careful! Especially with editing the registry!
What I did:
Voilà! Everything is working properly.

I've spent the last 2 days looking to revert my drivers for the Rumblepad 2, since the profiler did not detect it after an update. I followed your steps and reinstalled, it worked PERFECTLY! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

If you didn't format your hard drive before you reinstalled Windows 7, old files are still present there. I think that's the problem. Format your system partition and install Windows from scratch or try to apply the solution step by step.

I couldn't even find half those files you deleted, by merely uninstalling the old drivers and reinstalling the newer ones you suggested my problems were solved. Thanks alot! :-)
