I saw someone else had this problem. I tried to do what they did, but could not find tapping tab in mouse properties. I have a Gateway laptop. As I am typing, and usually when I am typing fast, the cursor will go back to something I have typed previously, like another paragraph. I have to find where the cursor went, erase what was just typed erroneously, then move the cursor back to the end of the sentence I was typing. Sometimes it will go back, highlight something, and erase what I was typing. I thought that was just the way laptops were when you typed. My daughter used my computer and said her Gateway does not do that. http://www.geekstogo...keyboard-issue/

I have a Win7 64 bit computer. It is a NV53A if that helps. I think it is the sensitivity of the touchpad that I might be accidentally touching at times, but I am not sure about that. I have a Microsoft mouse, that is wireless. But I don't always use it. I think the link I gave might be for a Vista computer...as I do not see what they are talking about under mouse properties on my computer.

Update: I chatted with Gateway. They said it might be the insert key that is causing this. I did not even know what it was for. How do you make sure the insert key is not engaged? I clicked it and then it seemed to stop. But it is doing it again. I then clicked the insert key, and escape. It is still doing it.
