Subject Re: Zooming in
Date Wed, 08 May 2013 05:11:24 GMT
I have the same problem.  It used to be much worse, but I found a 
setting in the mouse/touchpad driver that disables the touchpad whenever 
another pointing device is plugged in.  After bootup is complete, I now 
get a message on my desktop that the touchpad has been disabled.  
However, the mouse still does not behave very well.   I can sit back and 
take my hands off the computer altogether and watch the cursor dance 
around all over the screen.  Sometimes it's worse than at others, but it 
always does a little dancing.  It's especially annoying when trying to 
place the pointer on a certain place and before I can click it moves 
away all on its own so I back it up and it jumps again.  Sometimes it 
makes me want to scream.  Mine's a Dell with Win 7 Home Prem.
