    Every now & then, usually while reading a blog page, my cursor starts running across the page if within a 'comment box' and my tabbed open web pages all race to scroll down to the bottom of the page.

    My Sandboxie is decommissioned at the moment. Will SB contain this or is the only remedy a reboot? what is this disease and is there a prevention?

    similar experience with me in the past but it ended up being because my mouse battery was getting low or because some dust had collected in my keyboard...maybe a check of your keyboard and mouse to see if either a new battery or cleaning would help?

    I'm not sure how Sandboxie would affect this one way or the other. Have you tried a different mouse? The only time I've experienced odd behavior was when my mouse dying. No scrolling like you're seeing, but the cursor was getting "jumpy".
