Help! Wait! Stop! MS Word is running away!

One of the Dumber Microsoft Word Questions Ever. When I try to scroll up or down a document in MS Word to highlight a select amount of text, Word whips through at lightning speed and highlights everything in the document before or after my cursor.
So instead of the three sentences below my cursor that I want to highlight, Word highlights the remaining 97 pages of my document.
This would be a minor inconvenience except that the document in question is now several hundred pages long and working on it involves near-constant cutting and pasting. It's driving me absolutely batty.
Believe me when I say that I've serached Word help for advice on this, but if it's there, I can't find it.
Any suggestions? If it matters, this isn't a problem in other programs- such as Outlook Express- where I scroll through documents and highlight text; the document scrolls by at a pace someone who is not a superhero can handle.
