    Problem Scrolling - Very Jerky and Slow

    I did an upgrade install of Vista Ultimate over XP Media Center. I had
    several issues, but the most troublesome is with my mouse. I can no longer
    scroll easily. On webpages, in Word, in Excel, in Notepad, when I attempt to
    scroll down it seems to hang, then jumps forward. The side bar also is very
    jerky and jumpy. I have a Logitech MX laser 1000. I've uninstalled the
    software and reinstalled 3 times (they have new Vista software) to no avail.
    I've now uninstalled it and am running it in embedded mode...no luck. I
    tried using other mice...no luck. I've got 3 gigs of RAM and a 2.7 gighz
    processor. My rating is 3.7, so it shouldn't be a hardware issue, but it
    feels like it is...it's as if there are numerous very resource intensive
    applications running and bogging it down (there aren't).
    I called Microsoft and talked to someone in India that was no help whatsoever.

    My Microsoft keyboard is also acting funny. When I tab or use the arrow,
    the tab seems to lock and it darts from cell to cell until I hit the keyboard.

    My computer is almost unusable at this point. I never, ever had a problem
    with XP. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That my friend sounds like a display driver problem . I suggest you update
    to the newest drivers availible for your machine. If you can post your pc's
    specs we can tell you which to get or further assist in this problem.

    try reversing the box in IE properties option for SMOOTH scroll. if checked, uncheck it or other way around.

    might also check for newer display drivers.

    I also have this problem. I have a GeForce 660GT, and I'm using the latest drivers from nvidia (ForceWare 158.18 for vista 64).
    The problem gets even worse if I do the "press the wheel down, drag mouse" scroll.

    Scrolling problem solved - installed the HP mouse that came with the computer
    instead of the optical mouse; however, just installed the Logitech cordless
    click optical mouse and no problem with this mouse either. Hope this helps!
    Good luck!
    Previously went to logitech website to download updates for the type of
    mouse I had...didn't work...but advised to use Hp mouse.
