Hi,
In Internet Options> Advanced> Browsing, try "Use smooth scrolling" both
checked and unchecked.

Next, visit the mouse manufacturer's website to search for updated drivers.
Note: there is reportedly an updated driver for Logitech Cordless mice.
If you don't find an updated driver for your specific model of mouse, the
driver for a newer, similar mouse may work.

From an archived post:
We have a laptop that was doing this using a Logitech cordless optical
mouse.
We fixed it by checking the tickbox "Scroll in Active Window Only" in mouse
properties.

Least likely to help... find the CD and reinstall your mouse software.

Hope this helps,
Don

Refresh rate and screen resolution make no difference to a browser - any
browser. I guess you didn't want to hear that. Something else is causing
your problem.

Does the behavior persist in No Add-ons mode?
http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/07/25/678113.aspx
"Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer's (No Add-ons) Mode".

If still no joy, try to Reset IE7 Settings (RIES).

Does the problem persist if you Reset IE7 Settings (RIES)?
Read this article before using! -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737

[Courtesy of MVP Robear Dyer]: if you uninstall (a) IE7 (which automatically
returns you to IE6), (b) all toolbars and (c) all third-party Windows Themes
(including Window Blinds) and don't reinstall IE7, does this behavior
persist?
