Curser randomly moves while typing

After a Vista reinstall my cursor will just randomly move to a different location in my previously typed text.


And just now.... sometimes a web page will just go back to the previous page without warning/rhyme or reason.

Weird.

Hows your mouse? Alot of moving curser issues are from laser mouses being dirty.

I'd try reinstalling any drivers for it.

There are key commands that move the browsers btw, back space and alt left/right arrow too.

Do you have the touchpad shut off?

I've heard/seen alot of people with mouse issues cause the touchpad is way sensitive, and a slight brush against it acttually activates it.

Also with it being wireless, what 2.4Ghz devices do you have near by?
