I am using Windows 10.  I am having several problems with my cursor:

 

1. It gets stuck on the screen and I have to click it to get it to move again.  This is causing problems because it ends up getting stuck on something I don't want to click. 

2. When I move the cursor around,sometimes it goes back and forth between zooming in and zooming out.

3. Sometimes after I remove my finger off the mouse plate, my cursor jumps to another place on the screen.

4. I can't click on scroll bars and scroll up or down.  I can only scroll up or down by clicking on the up or down arrow on the scroll bar.

5. Sometimes when I roll over an ad, it opens up even through I didn't click on it.  I just rolled over it.

 

 

This is what I've tried so far:

 

1. Even though I not using "pinch zoom", I tried the fixes for problems with that.

2. I made sure "magnifier" isn't on in the Ease of Access Panel

3. I tried updating the device driver.  Windows says I have the latest driver.

4. I also tried removing the device driver & restarting windows. 

 

I'm not sure what to do from here.  If anyone has any ideas of something else to try to fix this, I would appreciate the help.

I think the first thing might be to try using a different known good working mouse in a USB 2 port and see if there is any improvement.

OK, thanks.  I will try that.  Am I getting the correct impression, from your response, that it seems highly likely my touch pad has just gone bad?

I have no idea what happened or why but, my cursor all-of-a-sudden started working right again.

 

Sorry to have bothered y'all.
