my start menu is really glitching so when i click something it picks whatever is 3 down and i dont know if these are related but in internet explorer i cant drag the scroller bar on the side and in google chrome i cant click my favorites bar theres just alot of glitches with the menus and i tried a system restore but it didnt work. im pretty sure its not a virus and also one time i rebooted it because my spyware got rid of some tracking cookies and it was working for an hour then it came back an stopped working.


if u dont get what im talking about i recorded it

and it goes away sometimes but comes back randomly
its not the actual mouse because i used a mouse and the trackpad both have the same problem

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

I watched your video, I noticed you have a laptop.

For the most part your problem may not be software related.

You may have a problem with the touch pad or one of the built in mouse buttons.

That is my suggestion that you investigate a possible issue with those features.

Bruce.

yes but it wouldnt make sense for the mouse to be messed up if i can right click under it but i cant right click up one inch higher and also i dont know if you noticed but there was also the self scrolling part that automatically scrolled it down on the start menu but not on IE it would make sense for it too be the mouse.

but thanks for trying

also it goes away when i restart for about an hour then comes back so it also couldnt be the mouse

The reason why I said it could be the scroll feature of the laptop is if the pad/button had something creating a circuit or stuck key it will continue to try to scroll the bar back down, just like a stuck down arrow key, it will continue to direct the scroll bar down once the up key is released.

Spills on keyboards can sometimes make this happen.

If I am wrong and it is not a hardware issue and its a software or browser issue, I would not think it would affect both your start menu and your browser's scroll bar.

You may want to check your keyboard settings in the control panel to see if you have some feature enabled for handicapped people.

Bruce.

To me they are all menus to which can be controlled by the arrow buttons, I've tried that on my own computer under several menus, I held down the down arrow key on my keyboard and the high light scrolled down.

Okay, lets change from the mouse to your arrow key that points down. Is there a stuck key or liquid under the key?
