The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

My first suggestions would have been to check the lens as well as disable the touchpad to ensure your palm isn't doing anything. If those two things have already been done then I have to ask something obvious. Are you using a mouse pad? Sometimes the use of an optical mouse without a mouse pad will cause the light to refract and cause it to do something spontaneously.

One other thing in addition to the excellent suggestions made. Have you replaced the batteries or made sure it is fully charged if it is a rechargeable type?

Under the device manager does it state that there is only one mouse? Have you disabled the touchpad in the device manager or just on the keyboard? If you've only disabled it on the keyboard try disabling it in the device manager. Also try switching the usb dongle or cable to another USB plug? Preferably something like if it's on the left side plug it into the right side? This would test it with a different host controller to make sure that USB isn't acting up.

While I would think this would have nothing to do with the USB driver, I'm going to say maybe you should update the driver for your touchpad? It's a long shot but I've read up on a few things about problems with Toshiba's touchpad drivers so it's worth a shot.
Here's the touchpad driver for 32-bit A500D: http://support1.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/tpdrv-en-20110707111351.zip
Here's the touchpad driver for 64-bit A500D: http://support1.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/tpdrv-en-20110707134522.zip
Give this a shot and see what happens if you'd like.
