    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'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.

    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.

    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.
