My wife has a two of so year old Acer laptop,  just in the last couple of weeks when typing in Outlook or posting something on Facebook, the cursor jumps all over the page.  She uses only an external mouse (never the touchpad).  Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

This is normally dirt/dust in the hole where the IR laser comes out on the bottom of the mouse. Just give it a good clean. :thumbup2:
