Thumbs down Scroll Bar Moves by itself!!!
Hi everyone, Have encountered major problems with my desktop computer over the past few weeks and was wondering if anyone could help me.

Its a Packard Bell with Windows XP and I commonly use IE. Recently the scroll bar at the right of the screen >>>>>>>>>>>> has been frantically moving up and down without any influence from me. This isnt lag or delay because it will happen as soon as I open the window, it seems to be totally spontaneous and random but has started happening every time I open a window (IE as well as MS Word and stuff). I cant even search google cos it drags me to the bottom of the page and then up again of its own accord. The machine tower does alot of beeping when this happens and the whole computer starts to go slow.

I have done some research and thought it could be a script kiddie or something who has hacked into my computer but someow doubt this.

Any help would be hugely appreciated
