Question about Computers & Internet
Most likely culprit:
Do you have the finger touch-pad turned on?
Chances are you're brushing up against that, high static will increase the likely hood.
I don't even have to touch mine.
If you have a button to turn it off - great! Turn it off while you're typing.
I've seen some that lack this feature. I'm not sure if it can be disabled in the task bar; or if you'd need to disable the device through the hardware/device manager.
Another option is to just make sure your hands/wrists are elevated -- They really should be anyway to avoid carpal tunnel.
Hitting the: home, pg up, pg dn, and/or end keys -- Arrow keys as well, will do it.
Some sort of software malfunction. -Perhaps, glitch or compatability issue.
Virus/someone's accessing your computer - Usually they don't just play around with your sentences though. ;-)
Hope this helps!

Many laptops have a built-in mousepad or other touch sensitive area between the edge of the notebook and space bar. Many times, simply grazing the pad with the palm of your hand will change the location of the cursor - resulting in your typed text being sent somewhere else on the page.
Many notebooks allow switching the mousepad "off" to prevent this from happening. Check your manual or inspect the Function Keys, or look for a switch near the pad itself. Sometimes, simply pressing and holding one or the other the mouse buttons on the built-in pad will flash a message on the screen stating the pad has been turned off. Press and hold again to turn it back on. Yours may disable if you connect an external mouse, too. It can't hurt to try it if the other methods don't work for you.
I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.
