    Autoscroll problem (9.0.38.21)

    I am having a weird problem with the autoscroll button on my intellimouse. If I click it with a word document open (either by mistake or on purpose) I lose control of the mouse and the document scrolls up and down an few times then returns control. I don't recall this problem before. Anecdotally, I installed the recent security update recommended by Office Watch. I don't know that it is related howver. Any thoughts? I have had to disable the wheel button, as it's not unusual to accidentally clcik the button and get hung up trying to work on a doucment. Thanks.

    Have you tried checking the sensitivity settings on your mouse... I've had the same out of control thing happen and that seemed to have fixed it...
    Another thing... make sure the wheel and ball are all "squeeky" clean <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
    sorry... it's late... I'm punchy...
    hope that helps
    have fun

    Actually, there is no sensitivity settting with regard to the wheel button. It is simply and on/off toggle for the auto-scroll (as configured). As indicated, if the wheel button is pushed, it somehow is conficting with Word 2000 causing loss of control of the screen cursor. I am going to play around with Word's built-in scroll feature and see if perhaps that is where the conflict lies.

    You may want to download and try the Logitech V9 driver (I did because of a clash between the standard MS driver and some CAD software I have.)
    With it I can control the amount of screen movement varying from none to totally unusable. All other functions remain intact.

    ooooohhhhh... <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22> I gave up on pushing the wheel to scroll in large documents in Word... like you said, it jumps around too quick. I think it goes faster the larger the document is. For some reason (that I think would better be explained by someone who is not an insomniac) this makes it more sensitive <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> just an observation... I usually just use that for web pages.
    have fun
