    Scroll Wheel locks PowerPoint (Office 97)

    We just started a unit on PowerPoint in my high school class. We have FREQUENT crashes using the program. Most often (though not always) it happens when the student is using the scroll wheel to move from slide to slide. (yes, I've told them to stop using the wheel mouse, but it's such a habit that they eventually forget and use it). Some of the computers have Win 2000, some have XP Home. Various makes and models of computers all show the same problem. We also have one computer that locks up when using the scroll wheel in IE 6.

    Any suggestions to help us out of this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Try updating the mouse drivers, make sure you have the most recent version of Direct X installed, and see if changing hardware acceleration helps.
