    I have a new dell laptop w/windows vista system and using roadrunner as ISP. While typing an email, the cursor will jump around all over to a new spot usually back to the middle of previously typed areas. I'll then have to delete that part and replace cursor where it needs to be. Any ideas on what to do to fix this besides Hari Kari? It happens on websites, anywhere I type besides just emails.

    You're most likely inadvertently brushing/tapping the touchpad while you're typing. ;)

    Thanks for the help. I knew it had to be easy. Truck drivers hands and little laptops dont synch very well, lol. Thank you

    No problem. Aren't the most obvious of things the easiest to overlook? ;)
