Windows 7: cursor replaced by demon rectangle which sends me to hell and back

cursor replaced by demon rectangle which sends me to hell and back

My Toshiba laptop has a touchpad which sends the cursor where you wish. But not always! If you touch the touchpad just the wrong way, the cursor arrow is replaced by a rectangle, sometimes vertical and sometimes horizontal, and your position on the page is sent involuntarily careening to the top or bottom entirely against your will. If I didn't know better I'd think this is a virus but I believe Microsoft programmed this horror into Windows 7. My question is how I can disable it.

Hello ;

You need to uninstall the present pointing device manager in computer management and install the Synaptics pointing device.
Here's the link from where you can download it - Synaptics Touchpad driver 7.2.5.0.zip - CNET Download.com

Do you have TAP to Click set in the touchpad settings? Sounds like it is and what you are getting is a Selection box.
