I'm unable to type. My mouse keeps highlighted text and continue to write on

Original title: pointer Guard put text highlight and re-writing on top. don't have any insert, take hours to type anything, that it highlights the every.thing on the page - helllp!

The pointer appears out of control - will highlight each, step on my text after that I wrote it, highlights everything on the page. Sorry for a text simple but it takes forever.  When he runs programs create boxes on the screen--rather like click and drag the word of windows boxes.  arghhhhh!  Help, please. Use the laptop and not mouse. Constantly flashes/highlights text.


1. What is the brand and model of the computer?

2. this problem occurs with this application?

Did you change your computer?

I suggest you to update and download the drivers from the manufacturing of the computer mouse.

  • Windows 8 cursor jumps in the existing text and continues to type here rather than the finish line that I am on, anyone else spotted the same thing?

    Just upgraded to Windows 7 to 8, using MS Office Word 2010, worked well on Win 7, but now type text and the cursor suddenly jumps into the existing text and continues typing, rather than the finish line that I'm on.  Thought, I was accidentally touched for touch pad or other keys, so now consciously look for this but can find nothing on my part.  Have experienced it before with a processor OS Linux and Open Source, when the OS has been updated.  Think there may be a loophole to WIN 8.  It also happens when keying in the screens like this, that has happened twice while here. Someone else spotted the same thing?  Or is it just me?

    Also, anyone know how to disable "Open Tap" on the Mouse touchpad of the notebook, its annoying, I could disable in WINDOWS 7 but cannot know how Win8.

    Thank you very much for your help, the setting was not really there, but you gave me the name of the device, so I was able to download the right driver from


    above mentioned just in case anyone has the same problem. The site recommend to go with the hardware vendor's website, but ASUS has wrong driver, one of the above works fine.

    Thank you

    Go to your Hub. Click on the left icon below, everything what he could be and select the icon associated with your e-mail account which you want to remove these previous emails. At the top, just under the name of your e-mail account, will be a date. This will be the last date for which you received emails.

  • the mouse keeps jumping to the right.

    Separated from this thread.

    I use a Surface of 3. Windows 8 and now the mouse keeps jumping to the right. It's terrible and I can't work again. Can someone from Microsoft troubleshoot?



    Hi George,.

    Thanks for posting your question on the Forums of community of Microsoft.

    If your mouse cursor is jumping or jumping around the screen of your laptop, the first thing you can do is wipe the touchpad with a wet washcloth. If you use a laptop computer external mouse, you'll want to make sure to clean that, as well.

    A laptop external mouse with a rolling ball will have to be cleaned regularly to aid of peroxide or rubbing alcohol, rub the ball down with a wet washcloth later and then let it dry. Same laptop external optical mouse should be cleaned from time to time, but not nearly as often. Simply wiping under your optical mouse with a wet washcloth will suffice to clean that up, but you want to make sure that any visible dirt is removed.

    Method 1: Adjust your mouse settings: repeatedly jumping mouse cursor can be fixed easily by changing the settings of the mouse on your computer.

    1. Press the Windows key + X, go to the control panel in your laptop and click the "Mouse";

    2. You can change various settings, including sensitivity and speed of your touchpad and external mouse speed.

    If the problem persists, proceed to the next method.

    Method 2: update your drivers: another good idea when you are troubleshooting a jump or jump the cursor of the mouse is to make sure that your mouse drivers are up-to-date. To do this, go to the site Web of the manufacturer of your mouse and search for most recent and updated drivers and install them on your computer surface.

    Download and install the drivers



    If the problem persists, proceed to the next method.

    Method 3: Windows 8 and later operating systems come with a built-in option to prevent the cursor move accidentally while typing. You can find this option in the settings of your laptop (Metro-Panel).

    1. open Bar of charms by moving your mouse cursor to the top-right corner or bottom right of the screen, then click on the settings option.

    2 then click on the 'change PC settings' option given below.

    3 it will open the settings of PC or Panel of subway page. Now in "PC and peripherals-> mouse and touchpad.

    4 now you just need to change the value of the option "to help prevent the cursor to move accidentally while you type, change the delay before clicks work." First change its value to "No. delay (always enabled). If she does not work for you, try changing its value to 'delay'.

    Permanently disable the problem of boring cursor jump!

    I hope this helps. If you need help with Windows, let us know and will be happy to help you.

  • the magic mouse keeps disconnect

    Since I upgrade 10.11.5 OS, (iMac, retina-1 years material) my magic mouse keeps disconnect in the middle of my work - installed new batteries. And, when my computer is asleep, it is not wake up. Everything freezes. Any thoughts?

    The index is with your comment "of the new batteries installed.    Once you have upgraded to 10,11 El Capitan, there is a mouse specially designed for this OS.   It is not really spoken aloud, but the box for the Magic Mouse 2 has a clear statement to be for OS 10.11 (+).   As operating systems go for ever higher, it may make sense to buy new mouse because all subsequent operating systems will need the facilities of this new creature.    The old mouse will work to some extent, but not, it seems, 100%.

  • When you open a new window, it automatically loads the last content pop up (?) and I'm unable to type in the address bar or open a new tab in the new window.

    I don't know if they are technically pop-up windows (for example, if you perform a search on kayak.com, it will automatically open a new window of priceline.com with the search results), but that happens with Blocker on or off. Other examples are a little info to a financial site window or .edu, which opens a session is about to expire, or answer a FAQ (with the exception of the priceline example, these windows have an address bar or view a URL). In any case, once these windows are closed, if I try to open a new window, it will automatically load the content of this "pop-up". Whenever he does, I'm unable to type in the address bar or open a new tab in this window.

    How can I fix it? What I want is to open a new window which is empty, not load the previous contents.

    No, I just realized that I was holding Command-Shift-N rather than command-N

  • I am unable to Type or use the keyboard in Firefox 18.0 anywhere, including the search bar and URL bar. How should I fix this?

    I am unable to type anything or use the keyboard to type in Firefox. I use Firefox 18.0 installed on Windows 7.
    I am able to paste in the URL bar and the search bar, but absolutely not able to type in it.
    I already tried the 'reset' option but are still unable to type.
    Also tried Firefox in safe mode with disabled addons but are still unable to type.
    Install a new copy of firefox after Firefox uninstall and delete the old "Mozilla Firefox" in windows folder. but always impossible to type.
    Please tell me a solution to this.

    Have you tried restarting the computer?

    It is possible that you have activated the keyboard by chance to one who does not work in Firefox.

    Windows remembers the setting by application keyboard layout and you have probably changed the keyboard by accident via a keyboard shortcut.

    • Make sure you have the language bar visible on the Windows taskbar
    • You can do this via the context menu of the taskbar: toolbars > language bar
    • Check the language setting (keyboard) keyboard for the application that has focus via the icon in the language bar
    • You need to do that while Firefox has focus because Windows remember the keyboard by application setting

    Control Panel > regional and Language Options > keyboards and languages > change keyboards > advanced key settings > change key sequence

  • Wired Optical mouse keeps freezing & has no lights

    My wired microsoft optical mouse keeps freezing & the red light turns off. At present, it will work only after first off the entire computer & its reboot. However it only works for a few minutes.  This may be due to my 3 year old grandson disabled showing a lot of interest with small fingers in the below & red lights this afternoon. Bless!  Suggestions please?

    If it flashes on and outside and dies at random... you probably need a new mouse.

    Don't know what has been rough on me pointing out what is obvious.  Direct - Yes.  Probably what you end up doing - Yes.  Rude - I can't.

    So, if I remember, the most expensive computer mouse was about $ 25,000 - yours is * definitely * an inexpensive mouse.  ;-)

    If you want to try something before replace you... Try the mouse on another computer for a few days - it has the same difficulty?  If the answer is Yes - replace it.  If not - you probably been--but try a Different mouse on the computer in question.  Does show the same symptoms?  If so, chances are two things (the latter is more likely): 1) issue software - install the latest motherboard chipset drivers.  (2) USB port bad equipment - try a different USB port and/or get your motherboard extracted for hardware failure.

  • Why my (wired) laser mouse keeps freezing every 2-5 seconds and then turns off?

    I use Windows XP Professional SP3, and my (Genius NetScroll G500, USB) mouse keeps freezing every 2-5 seconds, until he "dies" (I can't move or something, it's like off). Sometimes, it works normally, sometimes doesn't. I don't really know what causes to keep freezing. This problem does not occur on Linux for now. I download the new updates, but I do not expect any kind of positive results, so please do not respond with driver update. Could you please tell me what to do to fix it properly? Note that the mouse is brand new, bought today.

    EDIT: It seems that Safe Mode fails.


    I suggest you to connect the mouse to another computer if possible, and check if the same problem occurs, this is just to check if it is the problem with the mouse.

  • Mouse keeps disconnecting and connecting

    I am running windows 7 Professional on my PC and for some reason, I started to get an error with the mouse 'guard disconnect and reconnect' for some reason any. I was using the mouse for a while, but this problem has never happened before, but now it keeps on past and he began to irritate me off the coast until someone knows a solution to this problem?

    That may mean its cord is damaged or worn out inside.  Have you tried another mouse?

    I need serious help please... We do translations of textbooks, I searched an excessive type function but have been unable to find, we are working in indesign CS 5. It takes allot of time to delete the text and type in the new language.

    Argh it's frustrating! I never noticed that the key was not working in InDesign.

    A bit of research and it turns out that the MS Office has this as an option in their software. But I can't find an option in the InDesign preferences to make it work.

    However, somethings do not appear in the shortcuts and preferences and are hidden triggers in InDesign that are accessible via a script.

    I'm not saying that it is possible to activate the button insert by using a script, but it is plausible that he can be activated.

    Maybe ask on the forum script? Scripting InDesign

    I know that this may be a possibility as with InDesign prior to export PDF documents interactive versions, there was previously no way to export PDFs interactive as unique pages if the gaps of.

    But the option to toggle this setting was scriptable.
