Since you are on Windows 7, this is probably what version you are on, unless someone else uses the computer that is "savvy" enough to want to try Internet Explorer 9.

As roncerr said, under the tools menu will be "internet options" Under that there should be "advanced reset" option. This will reset Internet Explorer to defaults, and might fix the issue.
Thank you very much. I checked and I do have IE8 . Glad you told me what that meant. Thanks. Now I will try and see if the suggestion about doing the reset will help. Thanks to you both. I'll let you know!

Thanks so much! I think that maybe the help you folks have given me may have solved the problem. At least it seems better. I did what you suggested regarding resetting IE (see I've learned something ~ I used IE)

Thank you SO much! Very much appreciated. So far it seems to being acting like it should (once in a while it will still jump to the bottom, but I can deal with once in awhile). Thanks again VERY MUCH!

I wonder if we can fix this completely. You said it only happens with Yahoo mail?

Would you be opposed to trying an email client?

Thanks, I think I'll give it a little time to see how often it still happens and if it does I'll let you know. Thanks!

Hi there
With laptops it's usually easily fixed by downloading the STANDARD Synaptics touchpad driver and disabling the touchpad when using a USB Mouse.

With a Desktop it's a bit different but the problem is often caused by strange Interference with Wireless Mice and USB ports.

If your desktop still has an old fashioned PS/2 type port (the small round hole) just plug your mouse into that (use a USB ===> PS/2 adapter if you only have a USB mouse).

Another solution is to move the USB devices around if you have different USB ports and don't mix USB 1 and USB 2 devices on the same port.

The cursor jumping is a REALLY ANNOYING problem when you have it -- short of trial and error there's not much you can do.

Ensure also of course that you have the most up to date VIDEO driver and CHIPSET driver installed too. You will need BOTH the VIDEO and CHIPSET drivers to be up to date for most motherboards.

In some cases the drivers updated by W7 Windows update can cause regression -- its best to use the drivers on the disk that came with your motherboard even if they "appear" older than the W7 ones.


Cheers
