    this is the first time i've reinstaled xp on this computer and now when i pull up any window that has a scrollbar on the side, instead of scrolling smoothly down like it's supposed to, it actually drags the page with it, so it looks like the page is scrolling over itself.....if i click once the page scrolls itself down accordingly which makes scrolling pages really annoying....i've went to my computer and properties and tried to configure it that way but i really don't know how to fix it. It happens in all windows, on the internet and in regular folders....

    any help??

    Go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab > Scroll down to Browsing and look for a check box that says use smooth scrolling. It is the very last check box under Browsing. Make sure it has a check.

    i had already tried the advanced scroll thing, but i didn't realize that since i had put a new graphics card in my pc that i had to update the drivers for it upon reformatting.

    needless to say it works great now, thank you very much for replying!!
