My mouse won't scroll in Opera

My Microsoft optical mouse will not scroll when I am using Opera browser, it works with everything else though, and it did work until last week when the pc was reloaded with Windows ME...

Can anyone help me please

Go to File, Preferences, Mouse & Keyboard and check that all that needs to be checked is checked.

All the ticks are in for the mouse. but it still won't scroll in Opera, everything else works fine.

Strange!! I'm stuck.

Have to wait for the Opera experts to come along.

I don't have a scroll wheel on my mouse so I don't know about this problem. However, you can scroll in Opera by click VERY near to the bottom, top, or side of the page (about the last 5 pixels). If you find that difficult, just click on any white space and drag. Scroll bars can be toggled with Ctrl F7 if you want to work in Fullscreen mode. See my Opera tips page for advice on working in Fullscreen mode click here

Seems that it is the version of Opera 7.11 that is the problem, there are lots of people that are writing in about it,I went on the Opera forum as suggested by Pesala and there are loads of people there going on about it.....
Thanks to all that wrote back to me

Cheers Tony
