Windows 7: Windows Explorer (scroll bar)

Windows Explorer (scroll bar)

Ok I will try my best to describe what is happening.

When I open my windows explorer to see all my folders. The scroll bar on the left hand side that scrolls through the folders keeps scrolling on it's own to the bottom. When I click on the up arrow to scroll up, it overtakes and scrolls to the bottom again.

Does anyone know why this is happening, or how I can fix it?

Hope this makes sense.

My solution would be to adjust your mouse setting from the control panel and to adjust the touch pad settings. It is probably one of the two. My guess is, the touch pad.

Yes, so navigating long lists of files and folders, we can scroll up and down which ever pane has focus. But it annoys the sh!t out of me when you need to scroll the navigation pane too. Surely it can be configured to scroll whatever the mouse is hovering over rather than having to be in focus as...
