Windows 7: Mouse pointer

Mouse pointer

I have looked all over and do not see a solution to my problem. My mouse pointer has a mind of it's own even when typing. Also, I have the pointer set to not show when typing but it still sets on where I am typing especially in Facebook it has a box where I am typing. I have set the sensitivity way down on the touch pad and am at a loss as what to do. Sometimes when in Microsoft Explorer and moving the mouse an object or folder is selected and moved on it's own. I do not see anything here in reference to my problem. Even when typing the cursor moves randomly into another area and adds the typed letters there. I use the touch pad only and NO external mouse. Please help.

uneducated LOL, ya right. It`s a simple fix while you work on your problem.

Ok then uninstall and reinstall the mousepad and driver software.

Clean your touchpad mouse.

How are they for educated answers.

Please don`t come here, ask for help, and then be rude. Just say Thank You for your suggestions and move on.

We are volunteers, please do not tell us what to do.

Hi Duehue,
This is gonna sound silly but i would like you to roll back your driver

WHY.

With the intro of W10 there were numerous problems with the OEM/Synaptics touchpad drivers.
multiple releases have been made sinse, and its possible that some of these are now incompatible with W7.
