A Setting to do with folders I cannot seem to find.

Alright you know how in Windows 7 when you say click on an item thats on the right side of the folder for example, how windows 7 will auto scroll over 1 forcing you to have to move your mouse back over to click the item.. Is there anyway to disable this? Windows xp or 98 never did this and I find it aggravating as all hell when it does it. Sorry I can't explain it better. Any help be apprecated because this has been getting on my nerves since I first got windows 7.

Not sure what you mean here. What program are you in when theis happens? When you say "Click on an item thats on the right side of a folder" What do you mean by "an item"? A file perhaps? Can you post a screenshot showing what you mean?

Now when I click say Lost Girl on the right, it moves it all over automatically like so.
