    Windows 8.1 Update 1 64bit Pro

    IE 11, clean install, smooth scrolling doesnt work.


    In windows 7 and windows 10 preview this works fine.

    I clean installed win 8.1 PRO for testing on my spare rig.

    Used IE11 a small amount and smooth scrolling was working.
    I Installed all cricitial and reccomended updates via windows update. Included was also a nvidia driver update. Rebooted of course/
    Now in IE11 the smooth scrolling is always off, even with the box ticked.

    I tried toggling the tick.
    Tried using the reset settings option in IE11.
    Still no smooth scrolling.
    This is a clean install, no 3rd party software, no imported data.
    No customisation of the ISO other than to add a EI.CFG to disable the requirement of a key.

    Any ideas?

    Roll back the driver or get one from the manufacturer's website.

    Microsoft drivers have a bad reputation.

    edit--- I'm lazy when it comes to driver updates & use a program to find them for me.

    sadly this hasn't fixed it, now using latest driver from NVidia's website, I will uninstall updates to find the culprit.

    seems only 3 updates installed, the rest failed with 80200056

    remember this is a clean install no third party software.
