Typed words run backwards. Also, cannot scroll down by mouse or slider in any application.

What are you doing when the text appears reversed?

What is the make and model of this computer?

For the backward text press Crtl and the right arrow key.

I have not clue regarding the scrolling problem. Let's see if we can take care of one problem at a time.

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

Mr. Peanut Butter Man:
While I was searching this morning for a VGA cable to hook up my mother's old PC to be able to talk to you, the problem I described went away (my original, uncharacteristically terse post I had to write backwards--really makes you appreciate "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" guy). The PC, a problem-free two-year-old Asus CG5275 desktop running Windows 7, had been on since I posted, without rebooting, which I had already done repeatedly. The problem was two things: The text would go backwards because the text cursor--in a browser or in Word--would stick to the left side. In Chrome, I would hear the error "ding" on repeat--dingdingdingding--if I just opened up that browser. (The mouse pointer was not affected.) This was not due to Hebrew or Arabic right-to-left text entry selection. The other problem, which appeared at the same time, was that the scroll was constantly at "go up" in browsers and in drop-down boxes (I erroneously stated in my post that this was true in all applications; in Word the scroll-down did work.) The scroll problem also meant that in order to follow more than the first posts in a discussion I would have to copy-and-paste a web page to Word. I should also say that these two problems started after I replaced a spottily functioning Siemens SpeedStream 4100 DSL modem with a new Actiontec GT701D. I'm not sure whether the text entry and scroll problems were immediate but they were within an hour. I wanted to simplify the setup to avoid any inter-device incompatibility at the beginning, so I had connected the PC directly to the modem, without the router I usually have; the router is now hooked up again. I can't imagine that a modem would have any software that would cause these problems; maybe the new modem briefly left the PC exposed to some internet malware. In any case, I really really appreciate your being on the case. High-tech-literacy folk who offer help to low-tech-literacy folk are <fulsome compliment here>.
