Swann USB optical mouse

I have this super little mouse for my laptop, it works fine except that if I set the wheel to scroll, say 6 lines in control panel.
It works until I shutdown and re-start, then reverts back to 1 line.

Is there a reason why I have to set it each time I start, surely the setting should be remembered?

I do not have the original drivers and the Swann website nor the many driver sites lists any drivers.

Thanks
Dave

Hi thanks for your reply.
I did not install the software as it is not for my mouse. However, I tried it and it sorta partially works.
The scroll functions and remains after re-boot on Office apps but in file manager or a browser it stil needs to be set each time I re-boot.

I had been waiting for further expert input.
I have uninstalled all mouse and touchpad drivers / software and let windows install its own software / drivers.
Now they both coexist and the wheel settings are saved.
