    Good morning:

    When I type the cursor will jump to another spot among the text previously typed or even off the page which means I have to grab the mouse, delete the misplaced text and return the cursor to the place where I was typing. This is very annoying and disruptive.

    Have spoken to a number of friends and several have claimed to have this problem while others don't know what I am talking about. Seems to have some connection with touch typing using all fingers. Have began to wonder if it is connected with the fact that I learned to type on a manual 22 inch Remington a thousand years ago and might be hitting the keys too hard.

    This problem seems worse with some programs such as e-mails however it seems very solid when typing this question.

    Would welcome any suggestions as to why this happens.
