Info on my PC is below. In many windows such as those opened within Internet Explorer, a right mouse click on the right-hand scroll bar acts like a double click, making the scroll go down much further than wanted. It used to be that a single click on the empty area of the bar would make the screen go down only one screen height. It now goes down two. Please help as this is irritating.

go to start|setting|control panel, and click on the mouse icon to open it ( with your mouse I don't know if you'll have to click once or double click, but you wanna open it in any regards) here you can change the settings on how your mouse works.

if that don't work, then try updating the drivers for it. also, check out device manager and see if any conflicts are happening.

If you can't find those settings under the Mouse settings in Control Panel try looking for Logitech, Microsoft, or other mouse software installed on your system.

No options/settings for Mouse under control panel. Just click speed and Left handed / Right handed. No conflicts in devise manager. Where could this other Mouse software be?

Try looking in the Start menu. Its also probably running in the background and in the system tray - move the mouse over each icon to see if any have to do with the mouse. Also what kind of mouse is it?

Actually, the ONLY place where this problem occurs is in Internet Explorer. It works fine (like a single click) in Windows Explorer, Notepad, etc. Hmmm?!?!?

There's no mouse icon or program in the system tray, Start menu, or Start - Program files.

do you have another mouse you can use, and see if the results are the same?
