    I've read many other threads and have yet to find a solution.

    Using Windows 10

    The mouse scrolling on browsers, applications, games, notepad, etc. jumps any time I attempt to scroll.

    I'm currently using an AZIO GM2400 Gaming Mouse but have used multiple other branded and types of mice and the issue persists.

    # of Mice Tested: 5 (All have the same scroll issue on this computer but work great on other computers) (Asus, Azio, Dell mice tested) (I'm down to a single Asus mouse due to a bit of a temper, RIP Asus Gaming Mouse)

    I have 5 USB Ports on this computer and the issue persists on all of them. 2 Top and 3 back

    I have deleted/reinstalled all mouse related drivers on all five mice.
    I have changed/tested almost every single mouse setting. (But willing to test more)

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your time.

    Same problem when booting and running a different Operating System from a Live CD/USB?

    A Live CD/DVD or USB flash drive contains a complete bootable computer operating system (OS). When you boot a computer from it, the OS loads into, and then runs from memory instead of a hard drive. This allows you to run an OS without installing it or making any changes to a computer's current configuration.

    To create one, download an ISO file containing the OS you want to use, (such as Ubuntu, Slax or Zorin), then use something like ISO Recorder to burn it to a CD/DVD or USB key.

    Now boot your computer from this disc/key and your computer will be running that OS instead of the one on its hard drive.​

    When you're done testing, simply reboot your PC from the hard drive.

    If the problem persists even when running a different OS, then the issue is probably hardware related.
