Windows 7: Mouse wheel stopped scrolling dialog box sliders

Mouse wheel stopped scrolling dialog box sliders

Hi guys, recently I have lost the ability to scroll dialog boxes' sliders with my mouse wheel.

I used to be able to scroll up and down using the scroll wheel but when I changed the performance plan to high performance versus appearance, I lost this ability and now I have to click and drag to move the slider up and down in a dialog box.

As an example, when I am trying to insert a building block from my Quickparts in Outlook 2010, I would like to use the mouse wheel to move through the options but instead I now have to grab the slider to move up and down.

My main mouse is a Logitech bluetooth but the same problem occurs with the wired mouse that came with my Asus notebook.

I've reset Logitech Setpoint to defaults but this has not helped. Nor can I see anything in Control Panel/Mouse that seems likely. I've also gone through the Performance Options in Visual Effects but can't see anything obvious there either.

Thanks in advance for assistance regaining scroller control with my mouse.
