    Hello,

    I have Internet Explorer 6 and i got problems scrolling.

    I can scrool and all with the scroll on my mouse but it seems to scroll like 5 lines at a time. And instead of actually scrolling the page, it pauses then moves 5 lines down.

    I want smooth scrolling instead of skippign those 4 other lines it actually shows them but passes them quickly

    This is actually a hardware problem, I think. At least it was in my case. I had to install the graphics driver for my video card and one for my monitor. And all my scrolling problems went away.

    What kind of video card do you have and what kind of monitor? If you don't have a cd (which I didn't in the case of my monitor), go to the web site and download the file. The only reason I had the cd for the graphics card was that my husband had just bought the same card for his system. Liz

    There are a couple of settings that could affect this. The mouse driver usually has settings for the number of lines scrolled with the wheel, and smooth scrolling for IE is set in Tools, Internet Options, Advanced. There is a check for smooth scrolling there.
