curser jumps to mouse location

#1
So this is driving me nuts. The curser jumps to to the location of the mouse pointer when typing. I think it may have to do with a mouse setting that selects a open window without clicking on it. Someone please help me out, its driving me CRAZY!!!

If it's a laptop, try setting the touchpad sensitivity to a lower number.

I have a button to turn off the touch pad. even with it off it does it.

I'm not a 100% sure what you mean, but is it by any chance this option:

Nope. So what happens (it just happened to me while typing this). When typing in a text box, if my cursor is to the left of where I am typing the cursor will jump to that location. For example if I have the cursor in the middle of the word "example" right now, it jumps back and as I continue to type its in the middle of the word "example". So now I have to move the mouse outside of the text box in order to type anything... needless to say this is not cool.

i have the same problem, sometimes i'll be watching a video in VLC and the mouse will suddenly move. Never happened in vista or XP same mouse same computer. Definatly pretty strange. Also i do not have the snap to option previously mentioned

perhaps making a circle of fire around my computer and sacrificing a virgin XP cd while reading from my windows CE manual will make my problems go away.

xp cds wont work. you need rare windows products to sacrifice like an old ME or 98 disk.

I am having the same problems with my Dell Laptop.

It was originally running XP and I upgraded it to Windows 7 Beta and this problem appeared. I recently upgraded (didn't do a complete fresh install) and the issue is still there.
