I have a sensitive touch pad on my laptop which if I let my hands get to close to it while typing does as you describe. Just a thought.

Is it my computer or is it this site? Does anybody else have had problem like that?
Of late, I have had a similar problem with the screen jumping around here when posting a reply, & have had to reposition the cursor. I don't use the quick reply, so I'm clueless. Only problem on my behalf, lately, is my keyboard is sticking... Probably time for me to get a new laptop, replace the keyboard, or use the keyboard I have attached through a port extension. Noticed the jumping screen/cursor only happens on this site though.

Charlie, I just checked, this is what the store put on my computer for me, they are all free versions that can be taken off the web. AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition (run once a day), Spybot-Search & Destroy 1.4 (run twice a week) and Ad-Adware se by Lavasoft (run twice a week). As I remember now I forgot to run the last two anti-spy things I was getting alot of chatter when I went to my email. I had a bunch of spy whatevers that had taken residence, were picking my computer for infor and trying to send it out. Not nice so I stomp on them regularly now. Hope this helps.

Charlie, check this out. This does everything Spybot and Ad-Adware do, and more. It's also free.

Buck and I have been using it for at least a year and have been quite happy with it.

Katie, that program is a good program, but it does not do what Spybot and Ad-Aware do. They are completely different types of programs.

Educate me, GB. After running C-Cleaner, I've run Spybot and Ad-Adware and those two didn't disclose any problems. Can you elaborate?

All that means is that you didn't have any spyware problems to begin with.

CCleaner basically just removes unused files from your computer. Spyware would not be classified as unused files. CCleaner will empty your recyle bin, temp internet files, cache, history, cookies, and things like that. Spyware is something completely different.
