    Hello!

    Does anybody know a good program to reverse scrolling on Windows 7 (x64)? I am so used to the "reversed scrolling" that I will always try to scroll backwards in Windows. This is soo confusing especially since Windows often doesn't use smooth scrolling...

    Hopefully Apple will update Bootcamp with that functionality when Lion comes out but until then it would be nice to have something else...

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry bothering you guys, found it myself.
    Obviously used the wrong search engine with the wrong keywords before posting here..

    You can do it via Autohotkey.com. With it you can even create an exe to put in your Autostart folder, pretty neat...

    What were the commands you used to invert scrolling using AutoHotKey?

    Thankkkkkkkk You soooo much for showing this. It was driving me mad in Windows because I'm so used to the scrolling in OS X then when I pop into Windows, I keep scrolling in the wrong direction.

    If you have the RAM you might try Virtual Box in OS X. When I run Windows 7 in a VM the scrolling is forced 'through' Lion so it works the proper way by default (reversed). Though for me I am doing .NET development which wouldn't require a native install like gaming would.
