Cursor Leaps About

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

Hi all
I am using a Dell Inspiron 1150 purchased with Home edition earlier this
year. I have converted the system to XP. In all applications (and I mostly
use VB/6 VBDotNet and Office XP) typing at reasonable speed, periodically
the cursor leaps to a different part of the document.

The problem occurred before and after SP2 and returned when I rebuilt the
machine.I have two other desktop Dell computers both running exactly the
same environment without this problem

Any one else experienced the problem and made progress with it

    If you don't have a mouse problem (try another mouse) or a mouse port
    problem (if you use PS2 try a USB mouse and vice versa) or even some strange
    motherboard problem or graphics card problem OR even just a driver problem,
    then it is possible you have a rootkit problem that should be investigated.
