Windows 7: Microsoft mouse wheel speed goes back to super fast after reboot

Microsoft mouse wheel speed goes back to super fast after reboot

Im using a microsoft wireless mouse wheel to scroll through web pages on IE9 and win 7.
I set its speed to the lowest possible in control panel and it works fine.

When i restart my laptop, the speed is back up to full when i scroll, but when i check in control panel >mouse settings, the speed shows that its still set to the lowest setting. I move the slider, click apply and it works again.

Anyone got any ideas on how i can get my mouse wheel speed to be consistent between reboots?

Did you right click on the desktop and select personalize, then in the left column select mouse pointer, there is a tab for wheel that will allow you to select how many lines for the wheel and other attributes for the mouse. If you have tried that, see if the manufacturer of your mouse has software that can adjust what the mouse does.
