    All Windows Scroll to Bottom of Page/Pane

    Hi,

    I have a couple of sudden, strange problems:

    1. If in any program where a pane's contents are more than fits in the
    visible pane, it automatically scrolls all the way down. If I drag the
    scroll bar to the top, it again moves all the way down.
    2. I'm entering this message via Windows Mail. I tried using IE, but in
    addition to having problem 1 above, when I try to sign into my passport, as
    soon as I try typing in my password, it will switch windows back to the one
    where I had opened the MS Vista forum page.

    I'm running Vista Ultimate SP1. Please help as I cannot get anything done
    while Vista is behaving this way.

    Thanks

    If this survives a restart, you should try SFC

    I wonder if the down arrow key is stuck on your keyboard. Or maybe Page
    Down, or perhaps a dodgy touchpad if it's a laptop.

    I have this same problem, and it's driving me mad. This is a brand new
    computer with a newly installed operating system and a brand new mouse. It is
    not a stuck key. It is not a faulty mouse. It is not a virus.

    I've seen complaints about this all over the internet, and not a single
    solution. I just see the same WRONG suggestions - your key is stuck, your
    mouse is bad, your computer has a virus. NONE of these is the solution.

    It happens intermittantly for no reason I can see, and the only way to stop
    it is to reboot. Every window scrolls HARD down to the bottom and the
    computer becomes unusable.

    What is the solution? There is a bug somewhere. Is there a workaround? Can
    someone report this and fix it? I'm running 64-bit Vista.

    That used to happen to me about once a week - and I'm running 32-bit.
    You're right, a restart fixes it.

    It hasn't happened in months... and I don't know what fixed it. Only
    thing I can think of is that I have been using Firefox exclusively for
    about the same length of time.

    Someone on Facebook suggested to me that it was a problem with the Thinkpad's
    touchpad (or possibly the virtual scrolling feature of the touchpad). I just
    disabled the touchpad, and I'll see how it goes!

    It did occur to me that it was a browser issue because it always seemed to
    happen first in the browser. I switched to Google Chrome and it didn't help.
    Might be interesting to try Firefox. Though if I try too many things at once
    (already turned off the touchpad), I won't know what fixed it.

    I doubt that will fix it. Mine is a desktop with a very standard
    keyboard.

    If disabling the touchpad doesn't help, I'll try your solution next. I want
    to try one thing at a time so I know what's causing what.

    The IE engine is also used in Outlook, so I'm not sure how much it will help
    me to dump IE. Do you use Outlook?

    I used Outlook 2003 for several years and am now using Outlook 2007.

    That's not the problem.

    I seem to remember an interaction with Winamp, of all things. I use
    the Pro version, and also did when I used to have the problems. I
    might also have had iTunes installed, but an earlier version than is
    available now. I uninstalled THAT about the same time the problem
    went away.
