    Question Mouse System Preferences (please help)
    I've been having issues with my mouse settings under the system preferences, specifically with the 'scrolling' option. I set the scrolling all the way up so I can scroll down websites a little bit quicker, but after a day or so, I will goto scroll and it will only move a tiny bit. I goto check the settings and the scrolling is now turned all the way down, everything else stays the same. Is there a way to stop this from happening? Maybe 'lock' the settings somehow?

    Are there more then one user accounts? Because I have experienced settings for different accounts being jumbled up before.

    If you just have one account, try changing the setting, then log out and back in and see if it saved.

    OS X's mouse preferences are sorta anemic. Try USB Overdrive. You'll be glad you did.

    Agreed. SteerMouse isn't bad either.
