Are you using IE? If so, switching to an alternate browser, such as Firefox or Opera may help.

You might also want to check if smooth scroll is enabled. It's an eyecandy feature, and thus, not necessary. It might be causing the problem.

Yeah, FireFox has really good pop-up protection. Although it loads a tad slower than IE, it is way more customizable and secure than IE. Because most hackers are oriented to IE's HTML format, FireFox is harder to hack (supposedly).
