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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
