Question about Dell Computers & Internet
As I am typing, the cursor moves on its own so that my typing ends up in a wrong place.
I think you need to buy a new mouse or test a diffrent one on your
computer. You might also want to try and change the mouse settings. You
can do that by right clicking the mouse icon in the taskbar and from
there open the mouse control panel. mess around with the settings to
change the speed at which it moves. If its not the problem then you
might want to try and reinstalling your mouse driver. Dell computers have mouse drivers on the site. Takes a few seconds to download and install.

I have found this is usually the small button in the middle of the keyboard (mouse button) I have tried some software to remove this problem but it did not on my laptop I ended up carefully removing the key board and disconnecting the two wires that go to the button My cursors kept moving across the screen

Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!

SOURCE: automatically cursor jumps
I have a Thinkpad T40 that's had this problem for around a year. I've completely disabled the Touchpad, so that's not the cause. I use only the TrackPoint "button" in the middle of the keyboard, and the cursor jumps when it's not being touched.
I have Avira anti-virus working actively (often too actively, since it updates twice a day or more!), and run anti-malware programs from time to time, so I don't think that's the answer either.

I guess the 'other places of the pages' is mostly the beginning of the line? It usually happens when the key stroke is not proper while using combination keys. Or also it happens when if you dont release a key when you press the next in between your speedy typings.
