I have Win 2000 Pro installed on my PC and occasionally I get the scroll bar on all apps ( IE5, Windows Explorer etc) seems to move up and down and only when I shutdown the PC for sometime does it rectify itself. Anyone know why?

Do you have a wheel mouse which may be defective?

I do have a MS Intellimouse Optical USB compatible mouse but have not loaded the drivers. Could that be it?

Maybe. The scrollbat thing would point to such a thing. Note that Windows 2000 has built-in support for generic scroll mice, so that you don't need a special driver to activate the wheel.
