Solved!

Continuous, unwanted scrolling in windows

Pavilion Desktop PC 570-p0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After a year of ownership, a problem has popped up on my Pavilion Desktop PC 570-p0xx.  This computer has  wired mouse.  Within 30 minutes after rebooting, the scroll bars of open windows will move down on their own, quickly.  Have tried three different mice.  Does this sound familiar to anyone?

@Tony_Czar Welcome to HP Community!

Check the Mouse options under control panel:

Start → Control Panel → Mouse → Buttons tab.

Check the box labeled "Use MS Office compatible scroll only."

Also, check the box below labeled "Scroll in active window only."


If the issue persists, attempt the below steps:

Attempt using an alternate mouse to check if that works fine,

 

Uninstall and reinstall the drivers for your mouse:

Go to the Device Manager and select your mouse. Uninstall it and then restart your computer. During restart, your mouse driver will automatically be reinstalled.

  • 1.   Click on Start and type ‘Device Manager’.
  • 2.   Click Device Manager.
  • 3.   Click + sign next to Mouse.
  • 4.   Right-click on mouse entry and choose "uninstall".
  • 5.   Restart your computer.

Let me know how that pans out,

Thank you for your suggestion. Based on ideas found online, I had tried this with a generic mouse; did not helped. I switched to a Microsoft mouse, which had the same problem. I deleted that driver, rebooted, and the Microsoft-specific driver was installed. This solved my problem. Thank you.
