    mouse not scrolling on a webpage

    I have not been able to get my mouse to work correctly on windows Vista. I
    am abble to scroll on word excell and other programs of that sort but i am
    not able to scroll on a enternet webpage that i open. I am not sure if there
    is setting that i have not activated but this is reall pain. Does any one
    have any fixes to this problem?

    I have found this with some web pages also. On the pages I have trouble with
    I first click on a text area. Then the scroll wheel works. If I click in a
    blank area of the web page scroll does not work.

    Some web pages work just fine without having to click on text at all. It
    must be the way the web pages are designed. Some may not be compatible with
    IE7.

    Thank you richard for your quick response. Question, is this cause of windows
    vista being new and web pages are not fully intergrated to have this fuction
    work properly?
