    Hi All TSG friends.

    In the last few months, my mouse scrolling has gone from its usual fast and fluid motion, to an extremely slow and jerky motion.

    I'm just wondering if this could be some kind of Adware, Spyware or Malware.

    I've run Spybot S&D, and Adaware personal many times, and come up with nothing.

    Any help/advice would be hugely appreciated.

    Hi Phantom010

    Actually, that's the one thing I haven't tried, purely because this is the only mouse I have right now.

    However, when I get the chance to get into town to buy another one, I'll try it out, and let you know how I get on.
