Problematic scrolling

Hi,
Can anyone help me here ?
I have an intermittent problem on my PC where pages automatically scroll to the bottom of the page - constantly - even when 'dragging' back to top or rolling up with mouse. This happens with both Web pages and any document/screen opened on PC larger than single screen size. I've reinstalled drivers for mouse and this appears to work normally i.e. it will navigate around a page but will not stop auto scrolling to bottom.
I'm using Windows XP Home Edition on an 'old school' Time desktop PC.

Athlon XP 1800+
1.54Ghz 480MB RAM

Had PC for couple of years now, no recent s/w or h/w changes.
Problem had occurred before, last year sometime - but no big issue and cleared after reboot. This time round it's pretty much constant and will happen on all screens (web pages, email, Word documents, File Folders etc.).
I don't need to be scrolling or using mouse to experience this 'rolling', page or document will open and automatically start to move or 'bounce' up and down monitor !

Any Ideas ?

Yes, have AVG 7.5 regularly updated and on scheduled system scan, also run Spybot - both results clean.
