Sometimes when viewing pages and I hit the back button, it goes all the way back to the desktop screen. What would cause this to happen.

Merry Christmas

Could be a problem with windows itself, not your hardware. Make sure you get all the windows updates. Open your internet explorer, click the tools drop down menu, and click Windows Updates. When it comes to the selection of what updates you want, click CUSTOM not EXPRESS. Make sure to get all the updates and get back to us.

What browser are you using?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Ok, I've updated windows. # different updates, 2 for rootkits and one for Dell monitors.
I'll keep an eye on it and see if anything happens.

Thanks

I had a client with this problem. You might want to try to go into your add/remove programs and uninstall the internet explorer 7, then reinstall via windows updates.

Have you checked the different settings for your mouse buttons in the Control Panel?

Go to your Control Panel and double-click on the mouse icon. Depending on you mouse and the software installed, you can have all sorts of options of what you want each button to do

I didn't see anything there that would indicate why when I would click in the scroll button on the side it would send it back to the Desktop.

Thanks
