I'm running windows XP pro and just recently I'm experiencing some problem with my pointing device, it keeps jumping around for no reason at all. For example I will typing something and the next thing I know the pointing device has jumped off of what I was typing so I have to click back where i was at and finish typing. The funny thing is, I haven't installed any new software or anything, thats why I'm kinda curious to why its doing this all of a sudden. If anyone has any ideas why this is happening I would really appreciate it thanks.

you did not tell us what kind of pointer you have...mouse or touchpad?

If touchpad, go to mouse properties in control panel and turn down sensitivity
