I have WinXP Home and when using certain programs e.g. XPCDBurner the scroll bar will move a few millimetres and then freeze.After a short wait it will move a tiny bit further - very frustrating!The scroll bar in this forum is fine.
Any suggestions why this is happening and possible cures would be much appreciated.

Sounds like the system is busy with a resource hungry programme. Is the HDD light on? It may be buffering info. on and off the drive. You could open up the task manager and see what is running. Right click in the bottom toolbar and select task manager from the menu.
