Cursor randomly jumping to last occurance of a letter
When I am typing in word or IM screens my cursor will randomly just to the last occurance of a letter. For example it may just back to the "e' in example in this sentence. I have checked to make sure I am not resting on the keyboard but it still jumps around. Noticed it filling out job apps and forms on the internet as well.

Make sure your fingers/palms aren't grazing the touchpad as you're typing. What's probably happening is your hands are too close to the touchpad, making the computer think you're using the mouse, and thus jumping the cursor around.
You need to disable the touch pad while typing. During typing your palm can accidentally touch the touch pad causing the cursor to 'jump' randomly resulting in the problem.
You have not mentioned the model but on Acer laptops there's a key in the upper row with a 'pad and finger' figure on it. If the figure is in blue, press Fn together with the figure key to disable the touch pad and then again to enable it.
This is a really common problem thats not actually a problem. Go to trackpad settings and make sure tap to click is off. Most laptops allow you to tap the track pad to act as a mouse button, try it go to an icon tap the trackpad youll see that the icon highlights as if you are actually left clicking. When your typing the trackpad senses your arm or wrist occasionaly and thinks your tapping the mouse, thus moving the cursor. So go into trackpad settings and turn off tap to click.
Since you have a logitech mouse, lets just disable the touchpad. You should be able to disable the touchpad via one of these methods:
Look on the top row of keys. You should have one that looks like a little mouse. If you do, hold down the "fn" key in the bottom, and press the key with the mouse on it. That *should* disable the touchpad.
Go to the control panel, and find the keyboard and mouse settings. Digging through the menus, you should find a touchpad. You can disable it through there.
