Is this a touchscreen desktop pc or portable pc? Could you provide screenshots of the issue? Has this happened in the past? When did this first happen?
Refinement of symptoms: refreshing the page will fix problem for about 5 seconds of scrolling then attempts to scroll, via touch, will just select text. It started a couple weeks ago. I am using a HP touchsmart 610 all-in-one desktop PC.

I hate doing that (very time consuming) and is it any different than safe mode? check out the pic of my distorted scroll bar using the mouse to click and drag the scroll bar in gmail. The start of this problem may correlate with the latest AMD video card driver update.
Could you provide more details on this if you believe this is due to a video card update? This may be a bug and can be filed.
Not sure the video card driver update is the cause but the problem started around the same time.
