    I'm using an HP laptop. The strangest thing: My cursor seems to jump or move suddenly when typing an MS Word doc. At first I thought I was just brushing the wrong key or something, but now I'm not so sure. I think I may not be at fault here.
    My anti malware is updated and used frequently. Microsoft Security Essentials.
    Thank you, info is appreciated.

    it maybe the touch pad - are you using the touchpad at all - my wife had the same issue and we had to remove a lot of the touchpad functions
    you could easily be brushing the touchpad - also sometimes if your paln is near the touchpad and typing can have the same effect

    ont of the FN + F keys should disable the touchpad - try that and see if the probelm stops
