Interesting problem.  There is a new computer and new mouse.  The user has a problem, where the cursor goes out of control and to the bottom of the screen.  For example, if they have excel open, then it keep scrolling down to the end of the document.

What in the world could be causing this?  Its intermittent.

This is on a desktop.

When you say brand new I am hesitant to point at the keyboard or mouse however this is usally caused by a stuck key as mentioned by alienvoice or a stuck scroll button on the mouse.

Does this happen regardless of application such as Excel or IE?
