I've got a problem where by any 'up + down' scrolling bar on the right of any Window goes crazy. If you so much as click on it at the bottom, it rushes to the top. This happens in any program, within XP.

It doesn't seem to be a hardware issue as there aren't any errors etc in Device Manager. I also Remote Desktop'd onto the machine and had the same problem with the scrolling go bananas. So again, I really dont think its hardware related.

I've also checked out the Event Logs and everything seems fine, there aren't any errors or warning suggesting that there is something going on.

I personally think it has something to do with a Automatic Update that may have been applied recently but dont know how to prove it/find it/fix it.

Hope you can help. :tazz:

Yeah, I was using a MS Optical via USB .

I unplugged that and tried using the touchpad and stick on the keyboard (IBM T42 Laptop) and same thing.

On my PC, I tried using a program called Proxy to remotely connect to the laptop which was successful.

I was using the mouse on my PC and the scroll-bar was still go bananas on my laptop.

This is why I'm 99% sure its not a HW issue.

I'm totally stumped! :tazz:

And the other reason I'm sure is because anything else I do with the mouse is fine.

Its only when I click on Scroll-Bars to the right of a Window.
