My screen has started scrolling on its own. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Check the 'space-bar' isn't stuck down on your keyboard.

checked -not stuck.

Next thing I'd try if using a laser mouse is to clean the lens on it either with a painter's brush or try a quick blow. If that fails try the mouse without a mat. It has to be a signal from the keyboard or mouse, hopefully.

Down arrow key?

You may have clicked the scroll wheel on your mouse. Click it again (press wheel down) to stop.

lotvic thought of that but you get an icon showing with directional arrows when depressing the third button.
