The mouse driver (a small software patch into the operating system) may be damaged.
You can try this:
- Open the Control Panel - Open the Mouse folder - Check through the different settings offered there and reset them to what you want.
You may have to reboot to keep the settings.
If that doesn't work, try the Restore routine next (hope you have it running).  Choose a restore point earlier than the problem point. Find the Restore info for your version of Windows via the 'Help' function you can access through the 'Start' menu.

Cursor freezes on my philips x72 laptop. Went to bed it worked fine . Switched on next day and after welcome to windows it asks for username password etc. Cursor will flash until i try and enter text. No...


If you don't normally enter a password, reboot in safe mode and choose a time before it went wrong with Restore Point. Then use an anti virus program to clean up your system.

The page scrolls up and down - somtimes even jumps up and down - when the cursor is nowhere near the right hand of the screen where the vertical scroll bar is.


It is possible you might have picked up a virus, or a bad device driver. Try a system restore taking the computer back in time before this happened, may resolve the issue.

How to get the task bar to it natural size?


It is possible to make the task bar taller than it is by default, and this is the only way that I know of to change the size of the task bar, so I have to assume that you are asking how to take the task bar back down to the original "tallness." You would put your mouse cursor at the top of the task bar until it turns into a double-headed arrow, and then click down and drag the top edge toward the bottom of the screen until it is the normal height. If the task bar is locked, this cannot be done, so make sure it is unlocked by right-clicking on an empty spot on the task bar and make sure that "lock task bar" is not checked first.

Sidebar has suddenly moved to side affecting size of screen. How do I return it to bottom???


You are probably talking about the windows Task bar that normally resides at the bottom of the screen:
.
Two ways of moving this task ba, to top/bottom/letft/right position of the display:
  1. Move the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar, usually in the largest blank area towards the right, click and hold the right mouse button and drag the Task bar to the bottom of the screen.
  2. Go to the Task Bar 'Properties' (You can get this context menu by clicking the left mouse button after putting the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar) and change the 'Task bar location on screen' option.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.
