Specs: Windows 7
my cursor jumps all over when typing. I will be typing somewhere and it will jump to a completely different place and start typing there. I am not hitting the mousepad with my wrist

Assuming it's a laptop (?). When cursors fly around on laptops, it's probably a bad touchpad and/or stick mouse (in the middle of the keyboard). Normal troubleshooting would be:

1. Make sure your system is clean of viruses.

2. Make sure touchpad & stick mouse (in the middle of the keyboard) is free from dirt & debris.

3. If you have an external mouse, remove it & test it on another computer.

4. Check your touchpad "sensitivity/touch settings" in the touchpad driver interface.

5. Uninstall mouse/touchpad driver; RE-install mouse/touchpad driver.

If none of that works, it's usually the TouchPad hardware that goes bad.

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!
