Flipping Screens & Doctor Visits

Computer: Okay, I've had enough of this crap.

What could cause a computer screen to flip back or forward to a previously-viewed webpage all on its own--and how can I make it STOP?

Do I need to reformat the C: drive? I'll do it, whatever it takes.

I can't even read my friends page without the screen going back and forth to other things.

Please help, someone!

Doctor Visit: It's been three weeks now that I've had this cough and excessive post-nasal drip. The cold is gone; the UTI is gone. I explained all of this to my doctor. She diagnosed a sinus infection and (thank God) gave me an antibiotic and a steroid.

Yea. Maybe this will take care of it, finally. The breath spasming and inability to speak a complete sentence without a cough somewhere in it have been driving me crazy.


If this is your browser going back to a previously viewed web page, my first suspicion is a java script. Do you have java scripts enabled? If so, try disabling them in your preferences or options or whatever your browser menu calls them.

Thanks, Bill! I'll try that. I updated our java scripts a couple of months ago, but that didn't seem to help, so maybe disabling them is the way to go.


Have you also noticed, for instance, the cursor moving unexpectedly in your word processor? First think I'd think to look for is cruft caught in the keyboard or some other keyboard fault, particularly in the area of the backspace key.

Thank you! We'll look into that. Our cursor does sometimes move across the screen of its own volition, and I've noticed that this screen flipping thing appears to happen more when I move the mouse wheel. Couldn't hurt to look inside the keyboard, too.
