I have just got windows 8 and I have some problems. When I'm surfing the internet, and if I swipe my finger over the mousepad, ex to the right, the screen suddenly shifts to the start screen. Its extremly annoying. Does somebody know how I can prevent this from happening?

I can't duplicate what is happening to you. Is it possible that you are swiping into, e.g., the top right corner. If so, then you would activate the charm bar. But, you'd have to do additional motion to get to the Start screen.

I usually use just one finger. I'm not sure, my laptop is completely new, its ASUS K55VJ 15.6" HD.
Most new laptops support multi-stroke jestures. So you need to be sure you only have one finger touching the touchpad. It's quite easy to have two touching if you're not aware of it. You can check the various settings in the control panel.
