How can I reduce the double-click speed beyond the slowest setting available in Windows 7?

I am aware of this setting in the mouse property:

Double click speed in Mouse Properties

However I would like to further reduce the double-click speed. How can I achieve that?

Based on TechNet - DoubleClickSpeed, the correlated registry key value is from 100-900 for the milliseconds.

DoubleClickSpeed

HKCU\Control Panel\Mouse

Data type: REG_SZ

Range: 100–900 ( milliseconds, in decimal )

Default value: 500

Description

Specifies the maximum time between mouse clicks that are interpreted as a double-click. If the time between clicks exceeds the value of this entry, the clicks are interpreted as single clicks.

Change method

To change the value of this entry, double-click Mouse in Control Panel. Click the Buttons tab and use the Double-click speed slider.

I tested by moving the Mouse Properties double-click speed all the way to the right to Fast and the correlated registry key value was 200

I then tested by moving the Mouse Properties double-click speed all the way to the left to Slow and the correlated registry key value was 900

I then set the correlated registry value to values higher and tested and then refreshed, etc. to confirm the higher value settings stuck.

It appears that setting this value to 5000 and then comparing the double-click speed is affected but I'm not sure how to measure to tell 100% for sure but this is simple enough for you to test to confirm if you want.

Based on all the information I could find on this inquiry with Windows 7, this is what I determined with my testing.
