Windows 7: Trackpad jumps around screen

Trackpad jumps around screen

This has happened for about a week now.

A lot of times when I use the virtual scroll feature of my trackpad, the mouse will jump to the right side of the screen. It is getting quite annoying and I just had to ask for help.

Also, when i go to the device properties for my trackpad on the mouse properties panel from the personalization screen, the mouse will instantly be stuck on the very right of the screen, even after using CTRL+ALT+DEL
