Cursor jumping around

When I am typing in a word document or on facebook, my cursor will jump somewhere else on the page. Sometimes completely out of site. Have any idea why it does this? I have a Dell laptop that is 4 yrs old.

Joann take a look here for some interesting ideas.

I liked the first response 'Lazy wrists' ;~)

You're touching the mousepad even if you aren't aware of it. Look in your settings to see if the touchpad can be disabled.

Thanks, I had no idea that is what was happening. I do appreciate you taking the time to respond. I'll have to take care of it.
