    A little hard to explain -

    Some pages are longer than what will fit on my screen - always have been - no big deal - I just read the top part - then scroll down and read the bottom part -

    Now - on some pages the screen will automatically scroll all the way down and only show the bottom section.

    The strange part is -

    I can not scroll up to see the top section - it will allow me to move to the top for .0001 second :upeyes: but then automatically returns to the bottom.

    this happens even if I try and manually hold the little scroll thingy up.

    I had this once before a couple months ago - I deleted IE and loaded the new version -

    Any help appreciated.

    No input on your IE issue, but is firefox an option for you?

    I already use Firefox & Chrome - like the news format of IE.

    I would point you to your Mouse control panel... Not knowing which OS you are running, I can't do more than that right now... but check and see if there is a setting off regarding your Mouse scroll settings.

    HTH...

    The problem comes and goes -

    For example - If I open up my on line banking account - then open the information for my checking account activity -

    There is a long list of deposits and checks that have cleared the bank

    No matter what I do I can't get to the top of the page.

    If I close the page - then reopen it - sometimes it works like it should - yesterday it did not

    So I reboot my PC - then open the same bank account and it works just fine.

    Today I have not had any problems - :dunno:

    I am running Vista if that matters.
