Acer Aspire 5315 2153 Vista Home Basic SP1, Bouncing Cursor Sluggish Response
Since I purchased my new laptop, I have a bouncing cursor with emails and word docs and frequently it goes to the PRINT button and prints out my half written emails. The system is sluggish as well at times, like it is trying to think. It makes for terrible typing and time loss.I have tons of pics and I see my C drive is about 3/4 full now. My email storage is a techie nightmare. I am always told I save too much, but I am in Real Estate and need to save them, I have asked if there is a way to save and delete, but no one knows any other way than archiving. I have been told to remove Acer preloads but do not know how to do that. I have also been told to fix the junctions and junctions within vista...I am at a loss and need to fix this as soon as I can.I use the typing in my business and it is too time consuming and frustrating.
I am not touching the touch pad..it bounces on it's own.

When you first boot hit F8 in Vista it should give you the option of doing a repair (this will not delete your files) it could be that your initial install was corrupted. This should restore those files. Hope it works.
if you customize your cursor then that might be a problem because your Norton might detect something wrong in using your cursor. and the another problem is that you install for the customized cursor to run.
please un install your cursor customizing program at your control panel, in add/remove program.
Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mouse and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad listing and select uninstall, and then restart the pc.
In Vista start control panel>classic view, then device manager
The touchpad will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal
Download the latest driver for dvd rom from Acer that will work with Vista SP1. Also try uninstalling the device in device manager and restart your computer. Vista may find "new hardware" and install the driver from its driver pack in SP1.
Try going to control panel, then personalization, then mouse pointers. Under mouse properties, go to pointers and try to use windows black (system scheme). See if changing your mouse poiners makes it appear.
