    Mouse problem on laptop

    I've just installed windows 7 on my laptop but now i have a problem that when i'm typing my mouse cursor will sometimes randomly select where the pointer is and so interupt my typing, anyone got any idea as to what could be causing this?

    I know my mouse pad had a touch to click optoion bt can't find any option to turn this off

    Try TouchFreeze a free utility

    Annoyed when you are typing a document and accidentally the palm of your hand brushes the touchpad, changing the position of the cursor in your document or accidentally clicking on an option. TouchFreeze is simple utility for Windows NT/2000/XP that solves this problem. It automatically disables touchpad while you are typing text

    make sure the proper touchpad drivers (not just the generic) get them from your computers support page, are installed, they have a function to detect palms and not cause this issue
