Sounds like a corrupted driver
Remove the current drivers and update with either new drivers or drivers from a win 2K CD.

You can get new drivers from the mouse manufacturers website

If this is a logitech mouse, look in task manager for em_exec...
if exist, remove from registry.
START->RUN->REGEDT32

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENT_VERSION\RUN\EM_EXEC

DELETE THAT KEY, AND THAT KEY ONLY, AND NOT UNTIL U HAVE BACKED UP YOUR REGISTRY.
Reboot to see if scroll still locks up PC.
