    Scrolling issue

    Win8 is driving me crazy. Often as not, while scrolling the cursor about with the touchpad, the "Gems" menu unexpectedly pops up, it goes to the "Start" page, or inexplicably launches an app for no apparent reason, which it will then proceed to revert to over and over again. I've tried "Classic Shell" and unchecking "Corner Navigation" in Toolbar/Properties/Navigation, to no avail. This behavior is incredibly disruptive and frustrating. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    (Just trying to scroll to click "Submit New Thread", it launched the "Gems" menu, then the "Start" page. ARRRGH!)

Disable Mouse Scrolling??? ...
How do you disable scrolling utilising a wired mouse in Windows 8? It was easy to do with previous versions of Windows using Tweak UI. But I've tried using this programme and the 'disable mouse scroll' feature is missing. There must be a way around this. Surely?
