Any window in my computer scrolls automatically by itself. What may be the problem? Any kind of virus/worm?
When I open any browser window, windows program window like notepad, wordpad or anything,. the page scrolls up and down or horizontally in a haphazard manner without the use of the mouse scroll wheel. It happens for a few mintutes stops for awhile then it does it again and again. I could not browse, type or do anything. What may be the problem for this? Any virus / worm attact? Please suggest a remedy to clear this problem. thanks

with respect; if it IS 'out of date'.................... by how much..days ..weeks or months ?

you will NOT be properly protected on there unless the av is FULLY up to date


you COULD change the mouse and see what effect that has but MY suspicion is that you have an infection on there ; have you managed to look IN your mouse controls to see if anything is 'not as it should be '?

try running an on line scan from trend to see if it fishes up anything untoward?
