What can I do to stop my screen from rolling?

by psmk518 / April 2, 2004 7:11 AM PST

I have Windows XP and lately whenever I am scrolling through email messages or am looking at websites, the page starts rolling. I will click my mouse on a message I want to read and when I start reading the page will fly up or down. I will click the mouse to stop it and then it will stop for a second and then take off again. It is really hard to read my messages when it does this because the page will roll very quickly one way and then the other. I know I read about this problem somewhere but can't remember when or what to do about it. Any ideas of what I can do to stop this? I have Ontrack System Suite 4 and checked my computer for errors but am still having problems.
