    Have you checked the drivers for your video card & mouse?

    cursor jumping

    Thanks Joe. No but I did download an automatic driver update program and it didn`t solve the problem.

    Are you using a laptop keyboard, or a separate PC keyboard (perhaps on a PC!)?

    keyboard

    Hi thanks for your response. I am using a laptop keyboard. The laptop was just updated with Windows 7. When it came back to me (by mail), this cursor problem showed up. I'll be typing away and then look up at my screen only to find the sentence I just typed only inserted back earlier in the document. The cursor jumps constantly. Updated drivers unfrotunately did not do the trick.

    If your laptop has a trackpad/touchpad you may need to reduce it's sensitivity.

    Normally that can be done though the control panel's mouse applet or dedicated mouse software from the laptop's manufacturer.
