Default Text scrolls even when I don't touch the scroll bar. Office 2003.

When I touch the touch pad on my notebook, I intermittently experience
scrolling even when the arrow is pointing at text. A small rectangle apears
below the arrow with + and - indicated, and the scrolling is in the
corresponding direction. This is also happening in Explorer as I write but
does not happen in, say, Windows Notebook. I am using Office 2003 on Vista
Home Basic.

It sounds like your touch pad has scrolling enabled. Check your Mouse
Properties in the Control Panel and see if scrolling can be disabled and/or
decrease the sensitivity. Most have this option but it depends on your touch
pad/computer.

Personally, I love the ability to use the touch pad to scroll since I don't
use a wheel mouse. If you can determine what you are doing exactly to start
scrolling (chances are you are near the right edge or bottom of the touch
pad - these are typically the scrolling zones) you might find you prefer it
too. :-)

I have a similar problem except that my touch pad won't scroll. I looked
under Mouse properties but there is nothing that enables/disables this
function or adjusts the sensitivity. Is there anywhere else that I might be
able to fix this? I am running Windows Vista.

See if there's a 'mouse' driver upgrade available that does provide these
functions.
