I have had problems with my system for a few weeks now and have been unable to find a solution or cause.

It was first noticed when I tried to shut down windows 10, I would click start and move the pointer towards the shut down button, Cortana opened itself and the number 4 was repeatedly appearing in the text field. I have now killed cortana.

 

In Facebook typing in a text field the caret sometimes moves backwards as I type.

 

In Adobe bridge in an image preview page selected thumbnails are changing themselves, the selection moving backwards.

 

I have run a full antivirus scan and the system is clean.

Needless to say this is somewhat annoying and any help would really be appreciated.

Problem identified as Tobii eye tracker. Somehow its setting had altered to allow eye tracking and control of windows and apps.

Thanks for posting the solution. It is always amazing what can turn round and bite you in the rear !

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 !
