    Cursor moves whenTyping email messages

    When I am typing email messages my cursor seems to move at will within the
    email and completely messes up the email. I have tried everything to resolve
    the problem. Others have had the same problem and Gary from MSN, had
    mentioned if using a laptop with touch pad, to go to Control Panel and
    "MOUSE" and enable "Palm Check", there was no such item in my mouse
    properties can someone please help me?

    Train yourself to stop brushing the touchpad inadvertently with your thumbs.
    Or use a Notebook Mouse instead of the touchpad.

    I use a wireless mouse.

    Can you tell me how to locate the "Palm Check" that Gary Vandermolen from
    MSN suggested?

    Is there a way to disable the touch pad in Vista Home Premium?

    Thanks for your help

    Do you have a laptop with a touchpad? If so, the Mouse applet
    in Control Panel should have a Hardware tab, with a Settings button.
    Not all touchpad drivers have this, it depends on the manufacturer.

    Contact the manufacturer's tech support pages or RTFM.
