I agree entirely with this statement.

I sometimes use my wife's Sony Vaio and couldn't figure out why the cursor kept jumping about without reason.

It turned out I was using a wireless mouse with the Sony touchpad pointing device still enabled. I do prefer a mouse to the touchpad wherever possible, so I just disable the touchpad when I'm using a mouse.

I use a Logitech wireless mouse, which cost me 10 ($15).

Hello again,

I use a wireless mouse. I did not know that I could turn the touch pad off.

Here's breaking news for me. Looks like my original problem is solved. Here's how it went: I highlighted a problem paragraph. As instructed, I looked and it was in fact "justified" I then saw a shrinking of space between the letters most places when I went Left. One glaring space remained (F reedom ...) that was removed when I went back into the Font box and saw the space box blank hitting the scroll down bar and clicking "Normal" bing - space gone.
Folks this is big for me! The hours that I spent laboring and reading through the 2010 word manual, and dummies book. This is so cool I am elated!
