Hi,
I would suggest you to try uninstalling the game from Programs and Features and then try installing the game in compatibility mode and check if it helps.
Step 1: Follow the steps to uninstall the game from Programs and Features:
a. Press Windows Key + X key and click Control Panel.
b. Open Programs and Features.
c. Search for the game that you are trying to uninstall and click the uninstall button.

Step 2: Follow the steps to install the game in compatibility mode:
To install the game in compatibility mode, right click the setup file of the game and click Troubleshoot compatibility and then select he operating system in which the game is compatible.

Hope the information is helpful.

Additionally I should mention that after installing windows 8 release preview this same mouse is not there when I boot the computer.

 

I have to unplug the usb cable and plug it back in then it shows up and works fine within the windows environment but not in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer.

 

It is a Logitech mx518 mouse that has worked fine for several years under many other os's like windows 7, vista, etc.  Now it won't boot and it doesn't work in full screen games.
