Is there a question?
It seems you have solved your own problem so I am unsure why you have posted.
No, There is an Answer!
I posted a solution to a problem that is prolific across the web.
Are tips frowned apon here?
Should I have posted in a different area?
I am confused by your unsurety....
Not at all
but that is not how these and many other forums work.
In these forums, a member posts a problem. The other members here will reply with suggestions and possible solutions. That is when your post would have been most helpful.
As it is, it will sink into the archives as more posts push it down the listing.
Sure, but why not discuss this?
For example, why did anyone have to do this in the first place?
Have the makers and authors messed up?
Got it! Post questions here....
Answers only belong after a question is asked directly concerning it.
....So what are the "TIP" post icons for?
It's for this.
My reply is to ask the question and have the conversation.
I did ask a question.
OK, Thanks for the help guys.
Absolutely helpful! this problem has been driving me crazy for months and I had no idea how to fix it. Tried what you said and so far my curser isn't jumping all over the page. Thanks!
I appreciate your help!
People that take the time to put down others need to get a life. I appreciate very much your post and it just fixed my problem! I think the problem with the guy that is upset about your post gets all of his/her self worth in being the one to post the solution to ones problems.
Have a great day !
Your TIP was at the top (not pushed down). It was clear and helpful. Thank you for posting it. Dunno what all the complaint is about -- feel free to post helpful TIPS any time!
East to follow. Time will tell if this fixed my problem, or if it is something else.
@Bushman I for one am glad you posted the problem and the fix in the manner you did. I found the answer to my problem quickly this way. Thanks again!!!
Still experiencing problems
I tried what you suggested, unclicked the hide pointer box and the problem is better--but still at times my cursor bounces to some other point in my typing. It's incredibly annoying--by any chance do you have any other ideas to try?
What have you tried so far?
I tried manually deleting the one PS2/Mouse driver that pertains to the touchpad, and reinstalling it, which didn't work for me. Also I've seen folks with a wireless mouse, that have issues with that, which I didn't. Also mouse sensitivity can be an issue, setting the sensitivity lower in control panel/mouse/pointer options.
I've also seen a third party software, "touchfreeze" mentioned, to fix the problem but I don't know anything about that.

even if the rigid say answers don't come before questions
YOUR answer came to me faster this way
Thank you Bushman!
This problem has been driving me nutty. Although I understand (and respect) that your post may not have been in the right format, your information saved me from having to post my problem and wait for an answer. So thankful to have gotten through this whole paragraph without the cursor jumping around!!
Thank you - it worked
Bushman, thank you for posting this. I have an HP Mini and have been reading the answers to this question since it was first asked back in 2006 and 2007, and this one worked. This is an ongoing problem, even though it is years old. I appreciate you taking the time to post an answer to a question that was asked so many years ago, since the original thread was locked so that no more answers could be posted there. This made it easy to go straight to the fix, which seems to be working for me!
Glad to hear it fixed your problem! My laptop did the same thing for years...
It's super frustrating, and I really thought I had a virus or something till I fixed it.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
Personally I don't see a problem with how you posted your remedy, a helpful hint imop is always welcome. Gooooood job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jumping cursor when typing
Dell Inspiron laptop, Windows 7
4 GB Ram.
First, thank you for your posting; it resolved my problem.
My cursor also jumped while typing.
Control Panel to Mouse setting: Uncheck the "hide pointer while typing"
Resolved problem after many days' of searching for solutions everywhere
on the internet.
Thank You, Problem Solved
Problem Solved !!! I think the way you posted you question with the answer attached was perfect. Saves time from reading all threads looking for the correct answer. Job Well Done.
Thank you for posting your tip, unsolicited. Since I am not a petulant man child who lives in my mother's basement, I appreciate your initiative in posting this problem. While the issue seems to have improved after following your suggestion, the problem remains. Someone alleged that AVG is part of the problem, but his suggestion was for AVG 9, and I'm using AVG 2013.
Thanks, again, Bushman!
