Typing cursor - text jumps around

Specs: Windows 7, 4G
Text - cursor jumps around in Windows 7. Strange but true.

If find that, when I'm typing on my Dell Vostro, the place where the next letter goes will suddenly jump to another spot on the page.

This goes for all software, Word, notepad,, Skype etc.

It is not the trackpad, I hjave made sure I don't touch that - and anyway it wouldn't make text jump.

But I'll be typing in Word - for example - and the next letter will suddenly to two lines above for no reason.

It always jumps up, never down and usually back.

It is the most bizare things I have every encountered.

Tried uninstalling software, Restore - everything.....

ANy ideas?


Thanks

t8769, I'm new to 7 so this may not apply. Previously, I ran XP and it had a trojan/worm that did that. It's similar to a virus, but not the same and an AV can't clean it. I required a special cleaner. Malware Bytes (http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756 ) or Superantispyware (don't have link. Google) could clean XP, dunno 'bout 7. If you try either, be sure to update it first as they change all the time. May not help, but won't hurt anything.
