    The prob does not occur all the time, it occurs on this website and it occurs in tiscali mail and it occurs in microsoft works. It is not to do only the touch pad as the cursor drifts when I am attempting to type.

    I am testing your hypothesis at the moment. I have found that if I touch the pad the cursor does move in the fashion previously experienced. I think it may take a while to be sure it happens because I touch the pad accidently. Thanks for your help to make a start on solving this.

    >Does this only happen when you are online or all the time???<



    I had a client once that was complaining that his mouse was jumping around all the time and that he cannot type in a way like that. So when I asked him kindly to demonstrate; i found out the he was always touching the touchpad with his hand palms without him noticing it which was obviously causing the mouse(POINTER) to move around the screen and appear on random locations.

Mouse keeps shifting the cursor to a different place in document


On touchpads if you touch the pad twice in quick succession it acts as a click and the cursor will move to the mouse pointer location. In mouse settings disable "tapping"

Cursor when using Logitech Trackball sometimes drifts up or down


I finally just was able to solve this problem! I saw somewhere that someone had made sure their primary mouse was selected under hardware, which got me thinking. I thought I had seen a second mouse option somewhere. So, I went into my Control Panel > System > Device Manager and click the arrow next to Mice and other pointing devices. Sure enough, there were two listed. A seemingly generic one and my Logitech I've been using. I right clicked on the generic one and chose disable and the drifting IMMEDIATELY stopped. I went so far as to re-enable that generic to see if it was a fluke because it had stopped drifting on its own yesterday, nope as soon as I enabled the generic device, drifting started again. So Happy!!!

Run awat cursor


When that problem happens to me I turn off my pointer pad. I have a Compaq Presario and it has a button to shut off the mouse pad. When I simply shut it off it does not jump when I am typing. I don't know the originating cause but at least I can make the annoyance go away when it would bother me the most. Hope this helps.
