    Windows 7 mouse cursor

    I am new to Win 7 and have it on a Toshiba Laptop.....everyone once in a while while I am scrolling around on a page the cursor is no longer an arrow and turns into a vertical retangle and the page goes crazy in a hiper sensitive way. How can I keep my mouse cursor an arrow and turn off that annoying vertical retangle it turns into unexpectedly? I don't want that feature on my laptop. Thanks John

    You might be able to find an alternate feature in the mouse properties section of control panel that is more to your liking.

    I suspect that while scrolling you push a little too hard on the wheel and activate the auto scroll feature. As Clint states, Mouse settings.
