    You have abreviated your opening post a bit too much. Please explain in clearer detail as to what you have tried. I don't know what you mean by, "been into control panel unticked mouse".

    Have you tried reinstalling the touchpad drivers from the manufacturer's site?

    Have you tried adjusting the sensitivity?

    Have you tried a USB mouse?

    What hardware is involved? Is this a laptop? A desktop? Touchpad? TrackPoint? Mouse? What type?

    You have to provide more details on the hardware and the problem.

    Change the sensitivity settings for the touch pad.
    Connect an external mouse, and disable the touch pad.

    The Pakard Bell Easynote is a laptop and uses a Synaptics Touchpad driver. It would help if we had the exact model number as there are a lot of different models.

    Go to this site http://www.packardbell.com/support/ and select your country. Then put in your PC's details to find your model. Download the Synaptics Touchpad driver and save it to your desktop. Go into the Device Manager and find the Mouse and pointing devices. In the list you should see Synaptics touchpad, right click on it and select Update driver software. Then select Browse from the next window and locate the new driver and install it.

    This will make sure the driver is not corrupted. Now see how well the touchpad is working. If it is still eratic, go into Control Panel and find Mouse, double click on it and under one of the tabs there should be a setting for sensitivity. Adjust it to a lower setting and try the touchpad again.

    EDIT Sorry if I have repeated anything that DoubleHelix mentioned are posts crossed.
