my synaptics touchpad has a mind of its own
Hello this is my first posting to your Windows seven forum. I am writing to you today because over the past two to three weeks my Synaptics touchpad mouse has had a mind of its own. It has been clicking and opening files without me pressing the mouse buttons or tapping the touchpad, scrolling by itself, highlighting and moving the files on my desktop and in my computer, etc. I have tried everything from physically cleaning the Touchpad thoroughly, updating the Synaptics driver
time and time again only to find no resolution to this issue, I have also uninstalled and reinstalled previous versions of the synaptics drivers
that worked before with my laptop only to be confronted with this same problem. I have ran scans on both Uni-blue registry booster and PC Tools Spyware Doctor (which I use as my registry and anti-virus/spyware programs) and of which I update on a daily/weekly basis and yet I have found no traces of what may be causing my mouse to act so crazy. I have also ran the system scan in the command prompt which was suggested earlier in this thread only to find out that everything was running properly and at 100% integrity.
I have an HP dv7-3065dx Entertainment Notebook [pavilion dv7 is the product name on the back] that I purchased from Best buy in 2010. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit that was pre-installed onto my laptop. I have been pretty thorough on keeping all of my Microsoft and HP drivers up to date and have only began to experience this problem with my touchpad earlier this month. As far as the programs that I use on a daily basis; I mostly use Mozilla Firefox as a web browser and Microsoft Word for my schoolwork and the GOM media player for watching videos. None of which I have been able to do properly since this issue established itself onto my computer. If anyone has any information on how I can resolve this sporadic mouse/ Synaptics Touchpad behavior please let me know as I am in desperate need to find a solution to this problem. Thank you for your time and consideration. - Lion
