Yes.

That was a thought but I'm hesitant in removing IE7 because of the
unintended consequences. Seems like whenever a big Window's
application, driver or patches are removed, there is stuff that
remains behind or unwittingly deleted that affects the system. Most
times causing one to totally reinstall the entire system. Which by the
way I just did on a laptop because removing an unused HP print driver
corrupted my registry to the point I couldn't print, even with the new
print driver.

I've Google'd for three days for everything related to IE7 scrolling.
Seems this has been an issue for a long time. I started this post by
mentioning my PC attributes because my first thought was that IE7 has
bigger resource requirements than what my system carries. Specifically
the video card. You would think that a 64 MB video card would have no
problems. Or it could be the web page design that is the real problem
because I only saw this problem on certain web pages, not all. Oh
well, I'm not about to spend $100 on a new video card just to use a
browser So, for now it's FF2.

Lesson learned, never fix what's not broken. Long live IE6!
