Going to my home screen, Google, the address bar constantly scrolled left to right and the only way to stop it was to close Google. Has not done it today but computer keeps freezing and sounds like it is constantly 'doing somethng'. Has been freezing sporadically, then returns to normal after a time. Yesterday was the first time the 'scrolling' has occurred.

I have Advanced System Care  7 installed and run a scan daily. Get a lot of malware threats and junk files. After scanning says system performance is good. Did a scan with Hijack This but don't understand what I m looking at or what to do with it.

Window 7 home premium

Acer Aspire M3470G

AMD a6-3620 APU with Radeon HD Graphics 2.20GHz

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Hello there,

 

I believe this issue is related to your "Mouse" settings so you can try troubleshooting as follows:

 

1. Click on the "Start" button

2. Select "Devices and Printers"

3. Right-click on the "Mouse" icon and run troubleshooter.

 

Good luck!

Get VIPRE Internet security Suite it is worth it I promise you. Type VIPRE in your address bar and select VIPRE official site and get it I did and I.m loving it. It saved my computer.

I feel rather dumb as I have no idea what you mean about your adress bar scrolling left to right.

Do you mean that the cursor appears in the address bar to the left and it scrolls/moves to the right?

 

Also, it may be worth mentioning that the kirkdesr58 post above mine, appears to be spam and probably not worth considering as a solution to your problem.

I may be wrong of course. It's just my opinion.


All is well in Paradise.

There is nothing wrong with recommending a different antivirus.

Switching to different one will not solve the issue.

Agreed.

I just thought that a rave review for a program from a first time poster, might have been spam, but I'm certainly not an expert on the matter.

Yes, the cursor was scrolling left to right. It has not done so today, but the pages keeps freezing.

 

Also, tried troubleshooting the mouse. No help there.

Since nobody else has said it, allow me to be the first - welcome to BC !

 

You never said what browser you are using. If it is anything other than internet Explorer, try uninstalling it and re-installing. If you are using IE, then you could download and try a different browser to see if you get the same problem there or not. You can take your choice from Firefox (mozilla.com), Chrome (google.com), Safari (apple.com) and there are a number of others.

It could be a stuck key on your keyboard.
