Jumping Curser syndrome

    I have the curser jumping problem and have had for some time on one of three
    laptops running Windows XP. These machines are running MS office 2003. I now
    have a new laptop with Win 7 running Office 2007 which has the jumping curser
    issue. So I have two laptops from different manufactures running two
    different operating systems and two different versions of MS Office.
    I have read of several fixes none of which have corrected the problems.
    Surely with as much as has been written about this issue Microsoft is fully
    aware of the problem and should have a solution. What is the proper fix? Is
    there a fix?

    Without knowing which fixes you've tried, how can we avoid telling to to try
    them?

    I have researched this problem and have see several suggestions for fixes.
    Some say it works and some say it does not fix the issue. I have have tried
    no fixes because there does not seem to be any one I have read about that
    workd consistantly or at all for some people. What do you suggest?

    "Jumping cursor problem" usually means that your thumb is hitting the
    built-in mouse device while you are typing. Stop doing that. Some laptops
    allow you to disable this device while an external mouse is detected.
