    Thanks map. I have had to do a recovery already, but it was doing it before that even. The reason I had to do the recovery was because it began to be unresponsive and froze all the time. Doin a system restore didn't help. I did virus scans, and no virus. I think it was the norton free trial messing it up. Once i did the recovery I was able to remove norton and have not had problems since.

You are still under waranty through Acer. It would be better for you to call Acer (number should be in you're manual). I'll bet they tell you to re-install windows. Fonts in you're system seem to be corrupt.
Acer info below. (Click on the link).

Hi, I have an Acer laptop with Vista OS. Like many others, I have a prolem with the curser, jumping all over the screen, causing a lot of typing mistakes/ problems. Is there aby fix for that?


I think what is happening is the heal of your palm is touching the touchpad. Try going in to the Control panel and lowering the sensitivity.
