[CSS] overflow: scroll;

I have a problem with overflow scroll. When I use it like in this div tag:

    padding-left: 5px;
    padding-right: 5px;
    position: absolute;
    border: solid 1px #526e86;
    height: 610px;
    top: 0px;
    width: 480px;
    left: 190px;
    text-align: justify;
    overflow: scroll;

It works fine in general, but I have the problem that the scrollbars are
_always_ shown. Also if they are not needed.

For example the text in my div-tag is always smaller than the width of
the div-tag (480px). Therefore there is always an inactive horizontal
scrollbar shown.

Is there a way to avoid that?

   Many problem disappear if you remove width specifications with
   fixed px sizes.
