    So I had Vista installed on my Penryn MBP for awhile and I always had uber-sensitive two finger scrolling with it. I rarely used Vista on it so it didnt bother me that much. However, I just installed Windows 7, and I plan to do a lot of development on the Win7 side, but I still have the uber-sensitive scrolling.

    Is there a fix for this?

    I think this is just the way the laptop handles the two-finger scrolling in Windows. It does the same thing in XP. I'm assuming it's something about the driver Apple uses to allow two-finger scrolling to be used in Windows.

    Yeah it has something to do with Apple's drivers. It's the same on my 2006 MBP.

    I don't think there's much you can do about it but to just use the scroll bar, or a mouse.

    Apple couldn't make a driver to save it's life. Don't worry, the trackpad thing pisses everyone off, as we're all dealing with the same thing.

    In the mouse preferences under Control Panel. Click the wheel tab and take the lines scrolled down to 1. I find this smoothes it out a little but it's still not perfect.

    yeah, run a real OS. Disinfect your computer of all Microsoft crap and your MBP will work well again.

    HTH

    Good drivers work good when they're made properly, regardless of the OS. They also can work like crap on a good OS because they were made like crap.
