Scrolling has suddenly decided to go totally wacky on my PC at home. It is running Win XP SP1 on an AMD 1700+ processor. The problem manifests itself in Windows Explorer and anything else which you can scroll around. It is impossible to work with. I have run a full Norton scan and Adaware. I deleted anything suspicious but it is still misbehaving.
Most mice will work with the Microsoft Drivers. (It is the WinXP default.) I know we can get better Drivers for your mouse. Turn the mouse upside down. See if you can tell if it is a Logitech or Microsoft Mouse or maybe some other brand.
It would help knowing the actual brand in order to find the best drivers for you. (Many companies put their name on Logitech mice, so there is a possibility that your mouse is just co-branded by Evesham.)

Spot on. Logitech M-S48a.
I'm going to take it apart tomorrow and clean the contacts as well. I did a system restore from a point a month or so back and it worked fine for about half an hour. I scrolled through things properly. It then started to display the same problem.
