Are you using a laptop?

Are you using a laptop? If so, you need to be very careful about where you set your palms/wrists down, because it's all too easy to accidentally rest them on the trackpad, which interprets it as a mouse press. And on some keyboards, it can be easy to accidentally hit an arrow key or something when you thought you were hitting some OTHER key.

Update to my original post

Hello Jimmy
Yes I am using a Laptop & I do try very hard to keep my hands clear of the
machine pads. I use a external mouse so the only time that my hand could touch the pads
is when typing.I have heard that it is possible to disable the pads & just use the mouse,
I do not know how to do this.

To disable varies with the laptop make and model.

I can't find the make and model so try TOUCHFREEZE next.

I have the exact same problem, except it doesnt turn blue and the cursor ends up going to where the mouse is. I am not pressing anything, nor doing anything other than typing.
