    Hi - ok here's my prob...
    this happens when I look at any webpage, open up any software.
    (i) when i try to scroll up/down with either mouse or arrow keys, the screen
    or page advances what seems to a line or two at a time, then reloads or
    refreshes.
    (ii) in addition to this when scrolling down then move my mouse pointer, the
    page defaults back to the top, which is annoying.

    yeah i've turned the scroll lock on and off, pause break on and off, screen
    resolutions properties are ok, i've reset my monitor too. all of these don't
    resolve it. so any of you guys out there know what may be causing this?

    i'm usin' xp home & all relevant software is up to date.

    thanks

    Are you using Norton Internet Security or similar? Boot in to safe mode
    with networking (with Windows firewall enabled) to test.

    have you got one of those touch mouse pads? could be a problem with
    that.

    Are you *sure* you're wating for the page to finish loading? Some java
    enabled sites can take a *while* to load and java pages don't show
    progress like html really.

    reply to you both.
    .... my optical mouse & mouse mat is fine, and its not particularly
    java related. as i mentioned in my original post, "when I look at any
    webpage, open up any software"
    it occurs on or off-line, hence i been checkin' the keyboard functions,
    screen res properties and my monitor setup.

    thanks for the replies thus far :)

    Perform a system restore back to when it was working fine.
    You may have installed software that is not compatible with XP.

    This could be caused by a bad/corrupted video driver or a defective
    video card.

    More info would help.

    How much ram do you have on your computer? What make/model. Do you know
    the speed of the processor? What Operating system do you run. None of
    this was mentioned.

    When you look down by the clock on the bottom right, how many icons do
    you see besides the time?

    1GB Ram, 2.40 GHz, AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3400+, XP Home +SP2 +updates, 4
    icons beside the clock. using 15GB of 200GB HDD.
    Thanks for joining the thread to hopefully resolve my problem.

    Bingo: the startup. Try this: start->run msconfig<enter>
    remove the checkmark beside startup and restart. It will ask you when
    windows come back if you want to undo the changes, say *no*. See if that
    fixes the problem. Note: you might have problems reading open session
    CD's with this change. To fix that, go back into msconfig, click on the
    startup tab and check the line that corresponds to your cd writing
    software. *Don't* check all of them as this will mean all those programs
    will be slowing down your computer again.
