before my Windows goes flying out the window.
I hope that I can describe my problem in a manor that will make sense.
I belong to a web site as a frequent responder that answers questions on various subjects dealing with employment law and the law in general.
Several months ago the site was hacked and they had to switch to another more secure server thats when I began having nothing but problems.
When I type a long response to a post, suddenly the scroll-bar on the right of the post field will rapidly start moving up & down a bunch of times. The mouse or cursor were not involved at all. It's like trying to write on a piece of paper while someone else slides the paper all over the table.
You won't get a scroll bar on the right of the post you're typing unless your post gets long enough to require one. Then the scroll bar, and therefore the whole field you're typing in moves up & down, up & down.
I think the problem I have been experiencing may have something to with my computer (ECS M863, XPPro,Sp3.) when I use my old computer( HP, XP Pro Sp1) I have no problems other than it's slower than the second coming. I can't help but wonder if it doesn't have something to with the change over to a different server. There was another person who has reported having the same problems with their computer at home as well as the at work, so thats three different machines with the problem.
I've brought it to the attention of the site admin. but since it's only affecting the two of us, they don't seem too eager to spend any more money to look in to fixing it.
I recently made a relatively long post here with no problems at all.
I've noticed that there seems to be a direct correlation with the length or word count and when it's likely to start acting up
It's a race to set the cursor and start typing before it disappears out of sight.
I might mention that there is a auto-save function that they've added that comes on about every three minuets or so.
Also I've worked off line at that site and had no problems.
This is what the posting box looks like.
I hope someone can help me resolve this problem.
I'd enjoy nothing better than telling them with your help what the problem was.
Thanks in advance.
