You are not sharing your computer with anybody remotely, right? That could be a mouse problem when it get dirty or the connection isn't working well and it sends wrong click and coordination to the computer. You can try to clean it or replace the mouse or try mouse in another ports such as USB, PS2, wireless mice. A virus or computer security check might be an option too. Hope that helps.

You're joking right?

If not, someone has hacked into your computer and can see and access everything. They are using a program like PCAnywhere, or similiar to control your computer from an outside location. These programs can be masked and/or hidden from view. You need a computer repair shop to assist in locating and removing this program. Then you will need them or you to SECURE your network, modem, and/or computer. A firewall will help greatly.

Cursor bounces around, doesn't release when highlighting


Does your laptop have a touch pointer within the keypad? This can cause the problem you're experiencing. Did you try turning the track stick off in the touchpad settings?
