Single click in scroll bar does double click

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Mark Cranness, Nov 13, 2003.

  1. Help!

    Clicking on vertical scroll bars has started to malfunction.

    A single click on a vertical scroll bar scrolls down TWO pages worth,
    and leaves the scroll bar half grey, half dark grey.

    It seemed to start after I applied the latest November patch
    (Q329115, KB828749 and KB824145)

    The following windows DO NOT exhibit the problem.
    notepad.exe
    Wordpad.exe
    msword

    The following windows DO exhibit the problem:
    OE 6 New Message,
    IE 6 web pages
    Visual Studio code editor

    It's NOT a hardware problem, because the problem also occurs through
    Terminal Server.

    System:
    Windows 2000 Server 5.0.2195 SP4 build 2195


    Please help!

    That's confirmed:

    Rolling back KB824145 fixes the problem, re-applying it creates the
    problem.

    Looks like I'm getting this same problem. It also seems to be affecting
    Outlook Express' cut & paste selection area.

    Is anyone else seeing this effect?
