Automatic Scrolling in IE 7

For the last one week my operating system is bahaving a bit weird
Main problem :1: automatic scrolling down in IE especially & web pages just get stuck & flickering click pointer
2:Some times Windows starts itself

I tried Task manager few times to get rid this problem but is kept doing this

I have Windows XP professional with Service Pack 3
AMD Athlon processor & 1GB memory
with Zone Alarm Firewakll & AVG Anvirus
I didn't install any other programtime which may cause this

If yours is an HP machine, set up using AMD rather than Intel, there may be a prolem with SP 3 which is causing these restarts and the IE problem:

Yes I have HP C3100 printer-but how to set up AMD rather than intel ?

This is quite a complicted thing. It`s to do with how your comp was manufactured rather than anything else. Hp used a non-Intel based system at one time and this has caused the problem on those particular machines ... SP 3 keeps trying to load an Intel driver which simply isn`t there, hence the re-boots.

When you have time, read the explanation given by Ms in the link above.
