    What kind of mouse do you have?
    Wired or wireless

    Try disconnecting it or resetting it
    You may even want to restart your computer

    Are you scrolling with the little ball?
    There a lot of threads dealing with how that ball gets mucked up and dirty

    I had the same problem. Like MD said, it was caused by gunk getting in the ball. You scroll down a lot more than up, so it gets dirty easier. Just clean it out, and you'll be good to go once again.

    You can try the suggestions found here

    But googling "mighty mouse dirty" brings up a lot of suggestions

    I love most Apple products, but seriously, you should invest in a better mouse, IMO.
