    the vertical scroll bar on the right moves up and down on its own accord. I can scroll down to where I want it, but before I can click on anything, it moves up or down from where I need it to be.:confused:

    Just a thought...
    Do you, by any chance, have a laptop?

    Some laptops with touchpads have a setting where you can scroll a window by touching the right side of the touchpad and dragging.

    If you aren't careful when typing or when you go to click, you can accidentally touch this area and scroll.

    You didn't say what browser you were using but I know Opera has a program where by just moving the mouse in certain ways it causes different reactions. Also it may be the type of mouse you are using. I had a LogiTech 3-button "MouseMan" and somehow got it stuck in the "Scroll in the direction of the cursor movement." Check under your mouse controls in control panel. Maybe one of these two are it. Also if none of the above and you are using Int. Ex. try restoring the settings to default values. Hope this helps.
