Having mouse/scrolling problems since updating to Windows SP2. Can someone talk me through the reset?

Since updating, can't scroll smoothly. I get a wavy effect on monitor.

machine and mouse fine before update. Have adjusted everything thought of, # of lines, speed, even looked in 'help and support' file. Tried everything they suggested, but it didn't stop the 'wavy' effect.

I'm a computer dummy, so give details please.

I don't want to totally dump the hard drive, but will if I can't fix this before I pull my hair out or get sea sick. lol

Update:

Eliane

Mouse is working fine, so it tells me.

Won't let me restore since the update.

Looked into both already.

Thanks anyway.

    To see if your mouse is working properly.

    Go to

    control panel

    System (properties)

    Hardware tab

    Device Manager

    Find hardware in list

    open the one you are using to see if is is working properly. If not then choose trouble shooting and follow instructions.

    You could try the System Restore which takes you back to a time when your computer was working good. Go To:

    start

    programs

    accessories

    systems tools

    system restore

    This process is completely reversable. And does not remove your personal files. Just go back one checkpoint at a time until your puter is working good again.
