I'm actually convinced this is a software issue (at least in my case) as it started the moment I downgraded my Cintiq driver.

No matter which driver I installed afterwards (as cleanly as I could): If it worked, it glitched. Where it didn't glitch, the driver did not find the device compatible in the first place.

Your method did solve it for me, and the loss of those buttons does not bother me, considering I never intentionally used them to begin with.

So, thanks :)
