I have a Toshiba notebook about 2 years old now and it is xpsp2 and operates fine with no issues of malware etc. However, I type rather fast and am frustrated by the fact that as I am typing many times during the day my cursor will leave the position in the sentence that it is in and jump and allocate the letter that I just typed in a totally erroneous part of the work that I am doing. I then have to delete the letter and move the cursor down to the place where I want to continue typing.
I am just wondering if there is some adjustment that I can make on the notebook that will deal with this issue. BTW, it has not just suddenly started doing this as it has gone on for some time and is really irritating.
I just thought that I would post and see if any member has suggestions or has also come across an issue like this.
Thank you.

Most times that this happens to me, it's my thumb brushing the touchpad. Try taping an index card over the touchpad to see if that's the issue.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
