Explorer And Browsers Windows Scroll Bar Issue


All windows programmes (such as browsers firefox, chrome, explorer) force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up. Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately resolve the problem. All windows programmes force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up.

Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately help. Environment using win 7 on a laptop (acer), with usb mouse. When the mouse is not used (i.e. Tracker pad is used) there seems to be a number of system freezes. We did not get these problems prior to windows 7 upgrade. The lap top is relatively new with 4gb ram.

Scroll Bar On Photo Viewer

How do you enable/show the scroll bar on the windows photo viewer? I am using two thinkpad t400, one running vista and the other is 7. On the vista machine, when i open up a large photo, the scroll bar will appear so i can go to the top or bottom quickly. On 7, that scroll bar disappeared. Is there a patch i can apply to get it back? It seems it is not in the option or settings. This is really painful because i have to deal with large pictures. And i've been going back to the vista even if i hate it so much.

Explorer Mini Mouse Scroll Wheel Problem

I seem to be having some problems with my explorer mini mouse scroll wheel. Most of the day the mouse works perfectly well, but around 2:00pm each day the mouse scroll wheel seems to stop working properly. It becomes jumpy and sometimes stops all together. Around 3:00pm it starts to work again. I've been investigating this for some time now and think it is related to the sun. The mouse rests on the table beside the window and as the sun shines in and hits the mouse at a certain angle it stops working, then when the mouse is out of direct sunlight it works again.

I've tried when it isn't working to put the mouse in the shade and it works, i've also put my other hand in front of it when it's not working and this also fixes the issue. Has anyone else heard of something like this or can this make sense, i don't know how the mouse senses the movement of the scroll wheel but if it is not mechanical but light related, perhaps this is the reason for my issues?

If you have any experience with this or have some news to stop me thinking i'm a bit mad here that would be great. Also if this does make sense and is an issue, how do i get this feedback to the microsoft r&d teams to take this into account for the v2 design?

Microsoft Intellipoint 7.0 Mouse Scroll Wheel Does Not Scroll

Microsoft intellipoint 7. 0 (wireless optical mouse 2. 0) scroll wheel does not scroll (very slowly or not at all) in yahoo mail in google chrome, internet explorer or firefox on windows 7. When i am in the list of messages in yahoo' new mail, the scroll wheel does not properly scroll through the messages. It barely moves at all (maybe one line with five scrolls). Scrolling seems to work fine in all other parts of the browser. I have this same problem in chrome 4. 0. 288. 1dev and firefox 3. 5. 7, and ie 8.

I have checked the scroll settings and tried selecting the highest scroll rate and the advanced setting to increase speed when scrolling faster. This has not changed the performance at all.
This problem is new since upgrading from xp to windows 7 ultimate and reinstalling the mouse driver.
I have another laptop, no external mouse or keyboard, windows 7, and there is no problem with the scrolling (using it's touchpad, so i assume it has something to do with the intellipoint software.

Full File Address In Folder Explorer Bar

How to show full file address in folder explorer bar in windows 7? Is it possible to make the address show similar to xp (c:program filesadobe. )? It's extremely confusing as it is now, especially when in a mapped drive (i would expect the base level to show the mapped drive rather than "computer").

Pc Will Not Allow Me To Scroll Lists

Whenever i try to scroll a list, ie, a paper size in my printer is defaults on one size and won't let me change. In addition, it defaults to the xps document driver and won't let me access my two printers. Sometimes it won't let me pick a program in the start menu. Any ideas.

Two Browsers Opening In One Window

When opening internet explorer, one window comes up, but it always has two tabs - i.e. Two browsers - each with my default home page, google. Neither browser goes anywhere weird nor acts oddly, they just sit there waiting for me to use them. Typically, to open a browser, i use a quick launch icon on my toolbar or a dedicated button on my keyboard. I have also tried using the ie icon on my desktop and have tried going to start>programs>internet explorer. Regardless of which method i use, i always get a window with two tabs.

I'm not sure when this started, but i think it was after my last windows update. Interestingly, i have a shortcut icon on my desktop for speedtest.net and when i click on it, i get one window only with no extra tab! Ditto with other website shortcuts on my desktop. This is not a huge problem, but a bit annoying as i must now close an extra browser.

Internet Browsers Connection Crash

I'm having problem with all internet browsers. This error occurs only when i'm using my main user, admin user. When opening mozilla or ie the page won't load. I have to wait like 2 minutes then page loads. I'm in guest user at the moment and no problems. It seems like my internet connection goes away, but no. I'm using msn and other connection required programs so connection isn't the problem. Still my browsers won't get proper connection to internet and won't load pages at first. Every time i reopen browser same problem occurs again. This problem really bothers me. I'm using windows 7 64-bit and running 4gb 2, 7ghz machine. Modem connection, not wireless.

Flash Player Making Browsers Crash

Whenever i use a site, such as youtube on any browser, (have tried opera, ie, firefox, chrome) i get the "not responding" message. I found this : http://forums. Techguy.org/windows-7/908928-browser-crash-windows-7-a.html and my problem sounds very similar, however i dont know how he resolved his problem. Just some info : running new laptop, windows 7 64bit.

I have tried updating and reinstalling the flash-player alot, when i go to the adobe site it says it is successfully installed. And just to make the whole thing worse, it doesn't always happen when i have just rebooted the system, however i don't think this is due to a problem with hardware, i have 4gb ram, 2. 1s something ghz processor.

Flash Causing Internet Browsers To Hang

This has been an ongoing issue and i am so sick of it. Flash content is constantly causing any internet browser i use to hang. My main browser is firefox. It mostly happens with flash video like on youtube. Sometimes it works fine for a while and then all of a sudden when i go to play a new video the browser will hang. When the browser hangs i will no longer be able to watch videos unless the computer is restarted. When the browser hangs it also affects windows too.

I can't even play videos on wmp, it would hang too. It only happens if the browser was hanged. I always get the hang errors when it happens in firefox but i have no idea how to use them. I have made dump files too when it happens but i do not have a clue how to use them. (Something about signature files or something)

Browsers Won't Connect To Internet

I’ve been contacting verizon since june 7 to get my desktop at home on-line. I use ie. Evan tried foxfire and safari. No one seems to be able to get me on-line. Even had a computer technician that i paid to come out, and he says it's verizon. Finally, verizon sent a field technician out twice and each time he was able to get me on-line after several hours and phone calls. It lasted for 2 days each time. After it went down the 2nd time, called verizon back and they said i had a defective modem 6100f because red light didn't go on.

Sent a new westell 6100g and the light now goes on, but it's red. Called back and spent some time with a support technician and he said there was some kind of outage in the area, he didn't know what. Told me he'd call back in 4 hours. Never heard from him. I plugged the ethernet connection into my laptop and the red light is still on the modem. I just want to know what avenue to pursue to fix my problem. I’m going to starbucks daily just to be able to use my laptop.

Verizon doesn't seem to be able to fix the problem. And i don't want to get a new computer if the internet connection doesn't work into the house. They put a filter on the outside at the box so i didn't have to put filters on my phone lines. My neighbor right next door has dsl and isn't having any problems. Does anyone have a solution? I still have window 2003 on my desktop.

Password Field Character Limit Problem With Browsers

When i type a password into a password field in internet explorer, firefox, or google chrome, i am only able to type 7 characters. This only seems to be an issue on this particular machine under all user profiles. It affects all sites i have visited so far. If i go to another machine and try the same sites the process works without any problems. I am wondering if there is any security settings or something that is overriding a password field. I am using prevex 3. 0 as my av client. Any ideas on what could cause such strange behavior?

Browsers & Mail - Google Search Results In Blank Window

This is one of those out-of-the-blue things that just started the other day. When i do a google search, i'll get the first page of results no problem. If i click on any of the search suggestions at the bottom or click to go to the next page of results, the screen goes blank and that's that. Refreshing the page doesn't do anything either. I can open the search results themselves no problem, but anything that involves further searching from the first page doesn't work. This just happens in ie9, it works normally in firefox no probs. Also, this is only happening on my windows 7/64 laptop. On my windows 7/32 desktop all is a-okay.

I've tried emptying the temporary files/cookies etc. With ccleaner, and tried it in private mode as well where the cache and cookies are bypassed. Finally i then tried resetting ie (tools > internet options > advanced > reset). No dice. I can drag page links from the results page up to the tab bar and drop them there and they will open that way (in other words, to go to the next page of links i can click and hold the "next >" link or one of the page numbers at the bottom, drag it up to the tab bar and release and the next page will open in a tab. )

Language Bar Changes Itself

The language bar randomly changes the language from us english to chinese for no particular reason, it also changes the keyboard input from us to multilingual canada, (which isn't that bad, you just lose out on most of your punctuation) has anyone else encountered this problem, i can change it back, it's just annoying when your typing and then you look at the screen and somewhere halfway through it you see that the language changed without any intention.

I can change it back but every couple days on the 3 computers i have purchased win7 for are having this issue, so i know it's not a hardware issue.

Address Bar Searches Ask.com Instead Of Going To Site

Sometimes when i type in an address to my address in ie 7 or ie 8 i end up at ask.com. This is especially weird since i have disabled all search engines i am not interested from the manage add-ons window and it bothers me more than ask.com wasn't there to remove and yet it's there in my address bar. In ie 8 the new link system show ask.com at the bottom of the list just begging to clicked on. I keep my virus checker and microsoft's windows defender up to date and neither has picked up any thing to suggest this is a virus or trojan.

Bing Bar Install Issue

I cannot install the bing bar on my windows 7 pc. The install completes halfway and then closes with no error or finish installed message. I open ie8 and it's not there. It is listed in add/remove programs though. So i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and a clean boot install. Scan for spyware/virus, system is cleaned. Also, deteled windows temp folder, cleared cache, cookies, disable add-ons. I can install the windows live toolbar successfully. Other programs install fine as well.

Any ideas?

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.

Delete History In Address Bar

I have a sony vaio. It has vista home. I have an item (site)  with accompanying info (images). That seems to be embedded in the history at the address bar.

All these methods work to delete all the other history but this one site and its accompanying images. I'm not real knowledgeable with computer but i'm trying. I think i have read in forum of similar (i think?) Problem. Can someone walk me through solving this?

Turn Off Search In Address Bar

I recently downloaded the latest windows update, which in turn updates internet explorer to 8. What i absolutely loved about ie is that i could just type something in the address field (without adding ".com") and it would automatically pull up the website. Saved me a lot of time and loved the functionality of it. Now that it's been updated, i can't do that anymore. Ie8 automatically pulls up google search instead of just loading the page. Is there any way to turn this feature off? It slows my work down. And little minutes each time tends to add up.

Delete Favorites Bar Folder

How do i delete the favorites bar folder? I'm trying to delete the 'favorites bar' folder from my bookmarks list in internet explorer 8, as it is redundant. I do not currently, and will never use it, and i also do not want it there. However, every time i delete it, it comes back a few minutes later. I've disabled the favorites bar via group policy editor, and i've tried a suggestion i found of setting the corresponding folder to hidden via windows explorer, then deleting the folder from my bookmarks, but it reappears a few minutes later. Is there any way of getting rid of this folder permanently?

Bar On Desktop For Easy Access To Email, Im

Just got a new laptop with w7 today, and i am loving it. There's one thing i was wondering if someone can help me find, though.

On one of the display computers at a store i visited, there was a bar at the top of the desktop with buttons for easy access to mail and im (and, i believe, a couple of other programs, but i can't remember which). It was not the taskbar just moved to the top - looked completely different. I thought it might be a gadget or something, but i can't seem to find it listed anywhere.

Can anyone help me figure out what this is and how i might get it on my computer? I know that i could just pin the messenger buttons to the taskbar, but i'm still trying to figure out what all i want to put there, so as to not let it get too cluttered.
