CAUTION:If you cannot configure the Multimedia or Internet keyboard buttons in Windows XP (the buttons tab is missing), download and install the HP Multimedia Keyboard/Mouse Driver Update - sp26752 . After installing the update, restart the computer and configure the buttons again. This issue occurs when Microsoft update MS06-015 is installed.
