When typing, the cursor jumps all over the page
I am running Windows 7 home premium 32 bit. When I am typing, whether it be on a message board, chat or in word, the cursor will jump anywhere on the page. Often this causes a mess and takes time to delete and replace. There is no rhyme or reason and it happens every time I attempt to type. i hope there is a fix here. I am on a Lenovo laptop computer. Thanks

Before I even finished reading your post, I was going to ask if you are on a laptop.

Is it possible that the heel of your hand is brushing the touchpad while you type?

I used to have it happen to me until I got so sick of it that I disabled my touchpad, and use a mouse pretty exclusively

I guess it is possible but the problem is getting much worse and I had another laptop prior to this one where that was never a problem. I will try to pay attention to your suggestion.

Go to Control Panel > Mouse and try changing the checkbox about hiding the cursor while typing.
