    mouse/trackpad keeps increasing & decreasing font sizes

    I have an Acer notebook/tablet and everytime I go to use the trackpad all of a sudden the font size increases and decreases. I have looked into the mouse settings and there is no box that says increase/decrease font size. This is driving me mental! It happens with every move I make with the trackpad. Is there a program or some regedit fix I can tweak? HELP!!

    Are you somehow accidently holding down the CTRL key (or any key) and moving the trackpad ?

    also look for touch click or things like that in the trackpad settings..

    or you maybe have a deeper problem..

Trackpad/mouse settings change after waking from sleep
The title pretty much says it all. The trackpad changes settings after the computer wakes from sleep. I have the right click disabled, and inertia scrolling enabled, and after waking up these settings change to defaults I assume. What can I do to fix this? Thank you
