Google Chrome – Mouse Scroll Issue

After installing Google Chrome on my home PC I noticed that I could only scroll down with my mouse wheel.  When attempting to scroll up the browser did nothing.  This seemed strange… since I could scroll up and down using the mouse wheel in other browsers (Safari, Firefox, IE).  

This issue has been extensively discussed in forums across the internet.  I found my fix in this sites discussion -> Solution to Google Chrome Mouse Scroll Issue

I ended up having to upgrade my mouse drivers from Microsofts site.  I have a crazy old Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical which is both cheap and effective.  

Updated Microsoft mouse drivers can be downloaded from here: Microsoft Driver Download Site

Not only did upgrading the driver fix the issue, it also gave my mouse additional functionality. (Macro creation, better wheel manipulation capabilities etc.)
