  1. Anyone here had this occur to them:
    When reading email, it skips to the next paragraph and then to the end of the paragraph. i was not even touching the computer (hands of keyboard and mouse) and it just skips to the end of the email and then to the next email. Using microsoft outlook and O/S is Windows XP Pro. Any Ideas?

    yea -- INFECTIONS. You must be fully up-to-date with MS Update if you're
    going to use Outlook. The same bugs that infect IE and Windows also effect your email client.

    Do you have a firewall and antivirus actively scanning your email?

    Here's an "outside the box" idea... How about a stuck key on your keyboard?

    Maybe the page down key, the down arrow or the END key, for example? Try a different keyboard (if you can), just to test it out.... . if you don't have any luck with the virus stuff, of course.

    ya did the virus check. was clean
    Did spyware stuff and there was like 2 entries i deleted. i also checked the page up and page down keys. not stuck. it is a IBM t60 Labptop. i am thinking its the wireless mouse. i am not 100% sure. will test it out.
    Thanks for the replies. :)
