erratic behavior of mouse cursor when typing

by blondiluv / November 14, 2009 3:43 AM PST

I have been using my Wacom tablet mouse for quite sometime & beginning to feel agitated. I can be typing & then suddenly the cursor will move to another are that I've typed. Which breaks up my sentence & I have to always proof read & undo what has been typed. I'd sure appreciate some feedback on this. Could my computer be hacked as I'm also using wifi {not my router like I normally do} & I've noticed that lately I have alot of users connected to my connection? I'm confused? thankyou Happy

wired or wireless?

Firstly, are you using a cordless mouse or a wired mouse? If wireless, is it with a USB dongle or bluetooth?

I'm using the Wacom tablet which is connected to the usb port. The mouse itself is cordless which can only work while it is on the wacom tablet to function with my laptop. Thankyou Happy
