Flying Curser

Why does my curser suddenly take wings and fly right off the screen in a hurry, when I'm not moving it? Sometimes I go to click on something and it flies way out so I click on the wrong thing, it's so fast I can't see it go! Other times it goes completely off the screen altogether.

If using mouse? Turn off the touchpad.

No touch pad. It is a desk top computer, still on XP. If I drag something to drop somewhere the item disappears right off the screen with the curser but is usually still attached to it when I move the mouse around to get it back into the viewable area of the screen. It's not seriously troubling, just annoying.

What browser are you using i.e. internet explorer, chrome, firefox, Mozilla ?

Borrow another mouse to try and see if that is the problem.

Clean your table/ mouse pad / hair stuck inside the laser or replace the mouse
