Might help to know what some of your system specifics are; for instance, laptop? Desktop? Mouse? Touchpad?

Usually, settings for mouse/cursor behavior, like what you are describing, are features that can be turned on or off by looking in Control Panel>Mouse.

With laptop touchpads in particular, taping the touchpad can result in the behavior you are describing, i.e. launching things unintentionally.

Is this a laptop, if it is it sounds like the touch pad does not have the correct driver, there is dirt/dust behind the touch pad or the case may be pressing onto part of the touch pad causing your problems. Have you tried a usb mouse if not give it a go to see what happens, then report back.

Auto-hide cursor?
Is there a way to auto-hide the cursor after the mouse/trackpad hasn't been touched after (x) seconds? Maybe a registry tweak or a program that is Windows 7 friendly?
