This setting allow you to disable the Windows smooth scrolling function, which on an low-powered system can cause performance degradation.
1. Using RegEdit find the key below.
2. Modify the value of 'SmoothScroll' to either '00 00 00 00' for disabled, or '01 00 00 00' for enabled. If the value doesn't already exist create a new REG_BINARY value, naming it 'SmoothScroll'.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
Value Name: SmoothScroll
Data: (00 00 00 00 = disabled, 01 00 00 00 = enabled)
