How do I shut down scroll lock

The scroll lock turns itself on.  Sometimes I can work for hours, others, it turns itself on every time I try to access something with a scroll bar (e.g. Favorites). Is there some way to just shut that feature down?  Do I need a new keyboard?

Do you have another keyboard to try? If it still occurs, that would eliminate the keyboard as the source of the problem.

Right now, of course, it's working fine.  As soon as the problem starts again, Ill try a new keyboard, and let you know if it solves the problem.

OK, USB keyboard is working fine.  I tried to just use the Microsoft mouse with the new keyboard, and the problem recurred. Just plugging in the Microsoft transmitter caused the problem. I'm using an old wireless mouse, and it is not causing problems.  So the problem is te Microsoft wireless set.  Thanks.
