    After reading all the posts, nothing seems to fix this problem. I use a Presario A900 with Vista. Every time I type, whether it's an email or document, the cursor moves all over the text. Please help me.

    Howdy,

    Does it do it in Notepad and is this a desktop or laptop and have you tried another mouse?

    It is a laptop, it does it in note pad and I only use the touchpad. This just happened just recently. Could I have downloaded something that is causing this issue?

    I would go to the manufactures site of the laptop and download and install the touch-pad drivers and re start the PC.

    Or you could try system Restore to a date before when it was working OK.

    I took your advise and downloaded the driver for the touch pad. So far so good. I'll keep you posted.
    Thanks
