Question about Computers & Internet
Let me know if you've already tried this:
For your mouse, go to "Control Panel" and click on the mouse icon. Click on the "Touch Pad" tab. Make sure the "Tap off when typing" box IS checked. Click the "touch sensitivity" button and adjust to "low". Click "apply" and "ok". If you've already done this let me know.
As far as your connection, I understand you have earthlink? What type of connection/modem do you have? With this information I can help

This issue can occur because of one of the below possibilities.
These may vary depending upon the type of mouse you have connected to the computer.
Mouse is not clean.
Optical portion of mouse is blocked.
Moisture or other material on finger.
Mouse is not clean
Users who have an optical mechanical mouse (most common mouse for desktop computers) are likely experiencing erratic behavior because the mouse is not clean or is dirty. Information on how to clean the mouse can be found on our cleaning page.
Optical portion of mouse is blocked
Users who have an optical mouse are likely experiencing erratic behavior because a portion of the optical eye is blocked. Most commonly this is caused by a hair.
Moisture or other material on finger
Users who are using a touchpad may experience erratic behavior because of moisture or other material on the finger such as lotion.
Mouse has been cleaned and still has problems
If cleaning the touchpad not fix the problem you can Go to your manufacturer website (dell) and download your touch pad mouse controller and reinstall that again in your computer.
Or try using and external mouse till you can fix the problem.
Please don't forge to rate my help! Thank you :-)
