Solved How do I make my scrolling go smoother, i.e. faster than 1?

Specs: Windows 10, AMD Athlon 2.6GHz / 2GB
How do I make my scrolling go smoother i.e. faster than one line at a time? It seems like everything goes too fast or too slow on my PC. I think I got the keystrokes to slow down (we'll see tomorrow), but now my scrolling herky jerks down the page, one line at a time. What do I do?

The 64-bit version has more overheard than the 32-bit version so it would definitely help to install more RAM. 2GB is way too little in this day & age. 4GB is the minimum. Most new PCs, other than low end ones, come with at least 8GB.

What AV program are you using & why didn't you just remove the virus rather than reinstalling everything? If you're still using the same AV program that didn't protect you the 1st time, you may have picked up another infection.

Drivers should be downloaded from the manufacturer's website. The driver might very well be up to date, but you should go to the manufacturer's site to check. What about the rest of your drivers - motherboard chipset, graphics, audio, network, etc - where did they come from?

Search for mouse settings in Windows 10, it should be there to adjust it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Assuming the specs are accurate - AMD Athlon 2.6GHz / 2GB - you likely have an older computer that was upgraded to Win10. Do you have the 32-bit or 64-bit version? Which browser are you using - Edge, IE11, or another (Chrome, Firefox, etc)? Your system could definitely use more RAM. Win10 could probably use a good tweaking for better performance as well. Have you installed the latest drivers?

Yes, I bought this PC used in 2012 and installed Windows 10 on it a couple of years ago. It is 64 version. Last month I got a nasty virus and had to reinstall everything. I use Firefox for almost everything. I tried to run a driver update for my wireless keyboard, but the puter says it's up-to-date. So how do I fix the scrolling? I don't want to zoom down the page, just go a little faster than 1 line at a time.
