    hi, i have windows xp home edition. I recently got my computer back from being serviced and the way it scrolls down the page using the mouse is like it is "rolling" or "wavy" and I miss alot when trying to read any page. it is very annoying. I want to get it back to the old, standard way that I can just scroll down line by line. Does anyone know what I am talking about and can anyone suggest something to try to correct this. Thanks, appreciate it

    renzandjo, Go into your Control Panel and open the Mouse applet and look under the Wheel tab and adjust the settings. I use 3 lines at a time but it's up to you.

    thanks, but it already set to 3. Any other ideas? It's like the pages are going down one on top of the other, very wavy. thanks

    renzandjo, Back to the Wheel tab. Make sure that "one page at a time" isn't selected.

    hi, it's not selected. Also my page view is very large. Words go off to the side of the page and I have to use the arrows to read the entire page. It's not the font size because I tried that. Any other ideas?

    renzandjo, Did you change your Screen Resolution recently? Right click your Desktop, choose Properties, under the Settings tab move the slider to the right a notch, click Apply/OK.

    no I have not. I just can't figure out what is causing this "quick scrolling" or rolling down the page, if you think of anything else please let me know. thanks

    renzandjo, Try changing the Screen Resolution to a higher number. You can always change it back to what it was.
