Well, first what program are you using to type in Microsoft word correct? Second try the same mouse on another computer and see if it does the same thing, third try a new mouse on your computer see what happens and get back to us.

you are probably clicking the touch pad on the laptop while your typing, because some laptops, you can tap the touchpad to click...

No, no dont worry your not irritating anyone. Its just this is the first time I heard of this, and its a laptop so its even harder to think what could be wrong. Now if its a desktop bam change the mouse if that doesnt work, then you know its a setting that has to be changed. Well if you have another mouse at home, plug it in and use that on your laptop see if it does the same thing. Dont worry if I cant help you someone else will. I dont have a laptop so Im no big expert. Just wondering what kind of doctor are you , dermatologist, dentist, ect ect..

Yeah John but im sure he/she would notice if he/she is doing that
