I have had this problem on multiple computers I think going back to even Windows XP, 7 and now 8.2 (or whatever it's up to now).

 

Say I want to upload a photo to a website. I click on "upload" and my picture folder opens.

 

I start scrolling down through the hundreds of photos using the side bar which allows "page down/up".

 

All of a sudden, it will start rapidly paging down, like the left mouse button is stuck, like I am hitting page down on the side bar.

 

I can click outside the box and stop it, but this is gettting annoying after several months/years of this occuring.

 

What causes this and how do I fix it?

 

Thanks,

 

Andrew

Is this a desktop or laptop?

 

If this is a desktop, what kind of mouse are you using?  P/S2, USB, wireless?

 

 

If this is a desktop press the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the X key together.

 

In the menu that opens select Device Manager, then click/tap on the diamond next to Mice and other pointing devices, right click on the HID Compliant mouse and select Properties.

 

Click/tap on the Driver tab, then select Uninstall.

 

Restart the computer.  When the computer is restarted the installation Wizard will install a new driver.


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

Ok I'll give it a shot. Yes, a desktop with a USB mouse.

 

Thanks a lot!
