You mentioned an indispensable utility called "catmouse".  Please post a link.

Also, Mark was complaining about not being to reach sites to install utilities on his corporate machine.  Have you tried installing them from USB drives?

Another trick is to launch an SSH client and set up a SOCKS proxy over the SSH tunnel.  You can then set up the browser to use the proxy.  Not that I'd ever do such a thing on my work machine. wink

I have been using WizMouse for the same functionality but may try KatMouse. Here's a link to it:http://antibody-software.com/web/software/software/wizmouse-makes-your-mouse-wheel-work-on-the-window-under-the-mouse/
