I hope I am describing this problem correctly. The curser has started jumping around. I'll be typing a sentence and will suddenly find myself typing in the middle of a word in a prior paragraph and such things. I am not doing anything I know of to cause this.

 

Anyone had experience with this?

 

Thanks.

@Hal106

 

What type of computer is this, a laptop or desktop?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

If these are laptops this is a fairly classic problem, usually caused by the base of one of your thumbs brushing the track pad as you type. It explains why, if I have to do any serious amount of work on a laptop, I always disable the trackpad and plug a mouse in.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
