Well, as for the first item....pages scrolling. Perhaps when the system was re-installed, you were deverted back to a default page-scrolling scale. I am not in front of an XP machine at the moment...But I know, for a fact, that there is a setting that allows you to change the amount of content that "scrolls" by with a single click of the scroll bar or a single roll of the mouse wheel. This settnig can be changed to "Full Page" or "3-lines", etc. I will post again once I am in front of an XP machine. In the meantime...if anyone knows where this setting is, do tell.
