Computer locks up when scrolling
Posted on 1999-07-05
I have a very annoying problem with Internet Explorer. Since I installed Beta 5 and subsequently New version 5, I am unable to use IE5 because as soon as I scroll using either the scroll bar (with mouse) or the scroll wheel on the mouse the system freezes and I am unable to restart unless I use the Restart button or turn off the power. The same problem has taken over scrolling with Word Perfect. Netscape Navigator and MS Word are not affected. I have been unable to get a response from MS folks. Outlook and my IP software have also developed some idiosyncrasies as well at the same time as the scrolling thing started.
Hope someone can help as I'm thinking of reformatting the whole thing and starting over.
Many thanks in advance.
