    I used to have this problem and it went away and now it's back. I don't remember how I got rid of it so I'm looking for some help.

    The problem is that, as I'm typing on my Gateway Windows XP laptop using the cursor in the laptop, the cursor jumps to somewhere else in my text and I don't even realize it until a few letters after so I continuously have to delete what letters ended up getting put in the wrong place and bringing the cursor back to where I want to type. This happens often as I'm typing and ends up deleting words too and is extretmely frustrating. Please help!!

    Have you scanned for spyware and viruses? If so, with what programs?

    Probably because the touchpad is over-sensitive. Check in the
    setting for the touchpad or mouse and change the settings or
    disable the tap.
