I have had a problem my computer it scrolls down and accross automatically i try to scroll back but it keeps persisting .
So i used my virus software Norton realtime scan stats and found when ever this happens C:\Windows user.dat is running
it drops a hidden file in my temp folder once i delete this file my computer is ok for about 1 hr then history repeats
Any suggestions?

OUTPOST FIREWALL

not all virus scanned pick up trogans
firewall software detects connection to and from your computer

PS its free

> C:\Windows\user.dat along with system.dat
Is a Windows file that is part of the registry and should not be deleted.
Does the scrolling problem happen in all windows or just one program.
What OS
