    Hi charlene and welcome to PC Help Forum

    First question; did you try a different mouse and keyboard yet? They would be the first and easiest things to change/test.

    It might just be a case of your down arrow being stuck on your keyboard

    I have the same problem with my computer scrolling down, but am using a laptop. It doesn't malfunction all of the time, and sometimes works fine. However, when it starts, it is thoroughly annoying. If the down arrow key is stuck, would it be an intermittent problem, and if so how would I fix it. If it's not that, what else could it be?

    Does this issue still require attention?

    Or is it resolved?

    Thanks for your reply :)
