Mouse Wheel Support

Lack of mouse wheel support in Windows PE is one of those things that can be annoying. Especially when you are attempting to navigate quickly around the machine and not waste time. It is actually surprising to me that it is not enabled by default in PE. This is something that can be enabled by a simple registry key addition.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\EXTERNALSYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\i8042prt\Parameters] "EnableWheelDetection"=dword:00000002
