Confused

My computer seems to have a weird problem. Every time I scroll up or down it glitchs. By glitching I mean it is very chopping and mechanical, instead of being very fluid and smooth. Almost like lag in a game. It also does the same thing when I move around window screens. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

Tools>options>advanced and under Browsing uncheck smooth scrolling if it it checked.

Also:

n the Control Panel, select Mouse and the Pointer Options tab. Uncheck “Enhance pointer precision” and the problem may go away.

I guess I should say its not just for word. Its for anything that requires scrolling. You know the bar on the right hand side of the screen to go up and down a page. When I move that up and down that is when my screen glitches.

Is it still under warranty??

If it is, take it back to the shop and explain the situation.
