Normally when you move through a Word document using the scroll bar the page doesn't update until you release the mouse button. With this tweak the document location is updated as you move.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new string value named 'LiveScrolling', or modify the existing value, to equal '1' for live scrolling enabled or '0' for disabled. Close the registry and restart Word.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\8.0\Word\Options]
Value Name: LiveScrolling
Data Type: REG_SZ
Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)
