    Someone tell me wtf this is, i have no idea. None of the WinXP machines i've used have ever done this.

    Brand new Dell, XP Home, IE6.

    Scrolling the mouse wheel one direction, then immediately the other causes the web page to browse back. Nice, but the problem is, its so damn sensitive, the slightest touch tends to activate it. :mad:

    What is it and how do i disable it?

    you should be able to change most mouse behaviours thought the mouse applet in the control panel

    what brand of mouse is it? also, check to see if there is a program for it running in your system tray - if there is then that's the place to change it

    No dice in any of the usual spots. :dunno:

    When in doubt, uninstall. It works fine now, but i wish i knew what it was doing in the first place.
