1. With Netscape, the use of the Search button starts a new full page web search with a various engine.  With IE for Win98, the search button opens up a side panel and is crap.  Most of the time it says object has moved.  Why doesnt Microsoft just update the default page address, and also how do I have a whole window screen like Netscape's?

2. I have a scrolling mouse, and although some software does not support the scroll, in some of the internal windows of the program, it does scroll but not in others.  Why would this be, and is there a seperate shareware program for me to get that will force every screen to scroll and work with my Intelli mouse?

3. What is windows scripting utility and can this automate tasks like when we used to use batch files for dos?  If so, how can I learn more about using it, commands etc.  Any website?

Q1.  Sorry I don have an answer to your first question
Q2. Try this "TOggle Mouse" shareware at http://www.toggle.com/binaries/togmouse.exe

Q3.  There does exist some scripting tools that can automate windows applications like we did in DOS batch file, such as the one I am using is a shareware called "Scheudle Wizard 98" at http://www.dlcwest.com/~sorev/sw98i.zip.  However, if you talk about task automation, there are some other better choices where you can schedule your task in a point-and-click manner, like the "AutoMate" at http://www.unisyn.com/automate/.
