When I've been on the internet lately the screen has been auto-scrolling to the bottom of the page. I did a virus scan to see if that was causing it somehow and got nothing. I'm not sure at this point whether it's a problem with my mouse or with Internet Explorer. I use a Dell Inspiron E1505 with no added external drivers.

I had the same problem a couple of years ago, mine was the mouse. Do you have another mouse to try? Or maybe take yours to a friend or have a them bring one over and try it.. :thumbsup:

Yeah, I have an USB mouse I can try out. I'll post back if it doesn't fix it.

Ok, I switched to the USB mouse, but the pages are still scrolling down on their own, and now to the side as well. What should I check next?

How about the keyboard, you can duplicate the action by holding down the arrow keys. Can you swap keyboards? :thumbsup:

Not sure if this helps or not but I had a similar problem a good while back and I am sure that it took an uninstall/reinstall of IE to solve it.
