See my profile for details about my computer.

I'm having a problem I've never experienced before.

I set my mouse scrolling to the speed I want. It stays that way until my computer gets rebooted, then it comes back with a much higher speed. I have to go back in and reset it again.

Windows 7 Home premium


Microsoft wireless intellitype Pro 7.0

Keyboard wireless 3000 V2.0
Mouse wireless 5000

Probably something simple, but nothing I've tried works.

Suggestion are greatly appreciated.

Try a different mouse.


Change batteries in mouse, if applicable.

You could change it manually in the registry. The value is here:


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WheelScrollLines


The default is 3, change up to increase speed, down to slow...

Thanks for the suggestions

Battery is fine

Registry: I'm very leary (novice I guess) about making changes to the registry. In the "search" block on the start button, I type in "mouse" and go to the screen which allows changes to all the functions of the mouse. This is the only place I've ever had to use to change the setting, apply/o.k.

Anyone else have any idea???
