How can I prevent selecting and dragging with overflow: hidden ?

    Hi,
    My page has a body with overflow: hidden, however, when you select text
    and drag down you can scroll the page down. How can I keep this from
    happening? The page shouldn't scroll vertically or horizontally, I've
    checked that the content isn't larger than the window.

    Thanks for all of your help!

    You are entirely right, after much digging I found a hidden div that
    extended past the window.

    Thanks!
