    My cursor keeps jumping around the page in both word and outlook. It does it
    indisciminantly, even now when i was typing this. On emails for instants i
    will be typing in the body section and i press a key.. any key.. and it all
    of a sudden will jump into the address bar or the subject bar for example,
    and then continues to keep typing in there. Or it will jump some where back
    into the paragraph ive just typed and continues to type half way into a word.

    Can someone help me please to try and make this stop...... damn it just did
    it again.

    Thank you
    andrew

  2. Andrew,

    By any chance are you using a laptop with a touchpad? If so, then the
    problem may be related to the sensitivity setting of the touchpad. You may be
    brushing the touchpad inadvertently whilst type or it's possible that just
    the "impact" of pressing the keys is enough to activate the touchpad. Most
    laptops have some sort of utility for adjusting the sensitivity of the
    touchpad; this utility may even display an icon in the system tray to make
    access to the utility easier.
