    Hi all, iv'e just done a fresh install of Windows XP (for various reasons). All is well apart from whenever i try to scroll through web pages, either using the bar or the wheel; it either jumps to the bottom of the screen or it goes in waves! Could anyone tell me how i can set to 'scroll smoothly'.
    In advance Happy Christmas and all the very best for the New Year. :eek:

    WhitPhil, we got a 50/50 out of that one. Followed your advice and the scroll bar works like a charm. BUT the mouse wheel scrolling still jumps from top of page to the bottom. We both know that YOU know how to do it! So let me in on the secret!!!!!!!
