  1. Cursor jumps and clicks

    I have seen a lot of posts on this problem and it has been around for a long time. I have been a Windows user since 3.0 and used CPM and DOS before that. Never had this problem until middle of last year.

    My mouse cursor will suddenly jump to upper left corner and click. I have lost games or had a new game started, had web pages closed for no reason, or if visible, had recycle bin open.

    Things I have tried:
    I have run SFC with no problems found.
    I have done a complete fresh install.
    I have done a complete virus scan with Windows Defender.
    I have uninstalled old mouse and keyboard and bought new ones.

    Under old posts I have seen where this could be caused by touchpads. This is a desktop and does not have one.
    All updates have been installed. This is an older system (Vista) but as I said above, I have a total clean install of W10. This problem is very frustrating. Any suggestions?

    Cursor jumps to upper left corner and clicks

    OK, I have done due diligence and searched this topic. I see posts for Win7, Win8, for Surface tablets and docking stations. None fit my situation. I have an HP 610-1280qd. I had done a clean install of W10 when it was first released and have done all
    updates since then with current W10 Pro build 15063. I have never had a problem until the past month. Using a Logitech USB mouse and keyboard. The cursor will automatically jump to upper left corner and click. I find myself on a new webpage or in a new game.
    Very frustrating and happening several times a day. Seems to be more frequent every day. I have found that even with the mouse turned off, it will still happen. I have run SFC and found no problems. Why did this just start to happen and are there any fixes?

    Does it also happen in Safe Mode?
    Did the problem appear the moment you installed a fresh copy of Win 10 or after installing third-party apps?
