The owner of my company is complaining that when he types on his laptop sometimes the cursor jumps around and what he is typing gets all messed up. For example:

If we was trying to type
The brown dog jumped over the white fence

it might come out as
The brdog jumped over the white fenceown

It seems to be possible related to either accidentally hitting the touchpod or maybe the touchpad is going bad but he says it only happens in word and outlook, and of course it only started happening after a windows update was run...

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this type of issue, I could only find one similar post and it was abandoned.
