You might have spyware messing with your mouse.
I suggest download Ad Aware 2008 (free software)
and run a full scan.

My mouse curser moves to the middle of the screen and clicks by its self


It sounds like there is a problem with the touchscreen. Seems to have a bad spot and thinks it is being touched. In device manager of the control panel, you should be able to disable it under human user device. Double click on that to make sure that is it and select "do not use this device" or "disable" to see if that is the problem. Also, the drivers of the wireless kb and mouse may not be compatible with win8 and interfering with the touch screen.

Curser keeps jumping from where I'm typing to the start of my sentence


Under control panel double click the mouse and under pointer options turn off the snap to setting and restart this should correct your problem, If not the mouse could be failing. I hope this helps.

My curser keep jumping back into text I typed? can you help?


Try booting in Safe Mode and see if the cursor does the same thing.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

If the cursor does not behave in the same manner then you might have a virus or infection that was causing the problem. Turn off the computer and boot it up again like you are going into Safe Mode, but this time select Safe Mode With Networking (this will give you internet connectivity). Download and Install MalwareBytes.


Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

My desktop pc window is jumping up and down. cannot control curser or jumping. intermittent problem.


What do you mean you can't control the cursor? Sounds like two different problems to me. The jumping is more than likely your monitor taking a ****. Check the monitor plug to be sure it is tight. Explain the cursor problem more is it the mouse cursor that won't move?

Typing and keyboard issues


If you're using a laptop, it sounds like the trackpad is too sensitive, so that as you type, when your thumbs touch the pad, the cursor moves.  You can adjust this easily in settings/preferences.

HP Optical Mouse Curser jumps around


I respectfully disagree with amusedgeek. He is correct aout the textured surface,though.Optical mice will take snapshots many times a second and reposition the cursor according to where the pattern was last. Rather than a single color, a pattern is your best bet for an optical mouse. The only thing I recommend is to make sure the mousepad isn't reflective at all- no glossy or semi-glossy surface. You want it to be non-reflective. Just to be sure there is nothing wrong with the mouse, you can test it simply by putting it on a newspaper and scrolling around.

I have a Toshiba L35 S2161 Laptop. My curser jumps all over the place while I am typing. It takes a long time to complete a sentence because I have to go back and bring the curser to where I want it...


i have the same prob with my laptop, the solution is to go to the manufacturer web and look up your model laptop and download the newest version of your touchpad driver or th synapsis driver for touchpad it will allow you to change the sensitivity of the touch pad, believe it or not you unknowingly touch the pad while typing
