Specs: Windows 7
I have an HP laptop and the mouse tends to wander all over the screen. I could be typing
somewhere and suddenly the focus will shift to
a point two sentences earlier

I assume this is a separate mouse. If so the best first step is to either try your mouse in another computer or another mouse in yours.

Also make sure you are not tapping the touchpad at the same time - sometimes the touchpad can be disabled.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If a separate mouse - and the type that has a small ball... then it may be it needs its privates cleaning...

The little ball would benefit from a warm soap and water wash. The innards to have the little rollers cleaned too; remove accumulated "stuff" that wraps itself arounf those rollers...

If more current laser style... It may be it's developed internal faults.

Have you tried with another rodent (presuming the problem as posted is re' an external rodent/mouse)?
