Help! This Mouse is Driving Me Crazy!

I got a new Samsung laptop for Christmas.  It has a nice wide screen, Windows 7, and Microsoft Office 2010. It's a lot faster than my last laptop, and the keyboard is very comfortable with a place to rest my wrists as I type. So, I really like everything about it...well, make that almost everything.
It has this automatic mouse thing that I can't seem to shut off. While I'm typing, it suddenly appearing and scrolls up causing me to lose my place.  Sometimes it goes completely crazy and jumps to another page. 

I looked it up online and found directions to turn off the auto mouse. I went into the controls and tried that.  It seemed to work briefly, but then it came back on.

Have you had the same problem?  Do you know how to get rid of this thing? It makes typing very difficult. I'm not good with technology so I'm lost here.

I would appreciate your suggestions. Thank you.


  1. I wish I knew how to fix this for you, but I don't. When I'm going to be using my mouse a lot, I actually plug in an old one and go with that!!!

    On a side note, I'm glad this wasn't about an actual mouse - I was a bit nervous!! :)

  2. Yikes! Tech stuff can be so frustrating. I used to use a laptop from my school that did this sort of thing. I had to carefully position my hands to make sure I didn't bump the mouse pad. It wasn't fun & totally slowed down my typing.

    Hmmm...I don't think my comment is helping much. Maybe find someone under the age of 17 and ask for help? That's usually my standard MO. :)
