Running Windows XP (HOME) on Toshiba laptop, Satellite, model A35-S159. Lately, whenever I type the letter "y" or "u", the cursor literally jumps to another area of the screen!! I have tried re-programming the keys, using "Key Tweak" which did not help. Also...installed latest driver...which seemed to have helped for a few days and then the problem started all over again. I have checked for viruses; spyware; etc. All seems to be fine. Does anyone have any ideas?? It is really frustrating to have to make the corrections to my typing!! Thank you!

See if this helps:
Control Panel (Classic view)-->Mouse
Click "Pointer options" tab
Untick "Hide pointer while typing"
Click 'OK'

Hi pip22!
THanks for the response. But.....I tried your suggestion....it did not make a difference!! If any other ideas, please let me know. It is very frustrating to type messages, in notepad, etc. and forever have to go back to make corrections whenever I type a "Y" or "T".

Thanks!!

Does the problem occur if you boot to Safe Mode?
