I now reinstalled the Logitech driver:

Yes, there is the option `middle button' in the driver, so there is no
need to uninstall the driver to get a `mouse-2' button in Emacs, just
configure it as `middle button'. Of course you can't double-click with
it, then.

What I will do now is have the middle button as double-click as
before, and follow the NTEmacs FAQ, "How do I get Emacs to recognize
the third button on my mouse?" (see
There it says: "[...] then at the very least you can have Emacs
emulate the middle button by setting w32-num-mouse-buttons to 2."

I also tried M-: (setq w32-num-mouse-buttons 3) RET, but that isn't
better than the default setting of 5 mouse buttons.
