Mouse scrolling problem

by waggoner / February 24, 2011 8:05 PM PST

I am using an optical wired mouse, as I scroll upwards on a web page or reach the top of the web page, the page flips back to the previous page I was looking at. The driver is OK and I have unchecked the box that says "Enhance pointer precision", I have also tried a new mouse, but the problem persists.

I have a Windows Vista desktop with the latest updates. I used system restore to get back to before the problem started, but that has not fixed it.

Would be grateful for any advice.

If someone installed "mouse driver software"

I would uninstall that or look at that mouse software to see if it does that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
