I have a user on a laptop.
Docked or undocked she has a mysterious issue in MS word.

Entire blocks of text will be relocated in the document.
She will be typing along and then BAM!! an entire paragraph will relocate to another part of the document.

This isn't an issue with the touch pad moving the pointer about and relocating the curser.
that's disabled in the BIOS.

windows 7 64bit, office 2010.

So if the touchpad is disabled, does the laptop have any other pointer devices?  Try disabling those?

External mouse?  Try swapping that?

Touchscreen?
