    this isuue has been with me before i upgraded, its 5 weeks old and never done it before...i open google chrome and one minute im on twitter next it jumps back a page, or jumps to another website, i downloaded firefox and it happens but not as much as google chrome, really want it to go away and to stop this full stop..... is there a reason for this?
    i have done full scans in safemode and catching nothing, don't no were to go now, hoping someone has the answer for me, i thought upgrading to windows 8.1 would of stop this but it hasnt.

    Does it happen in safe mode with network support?

    I would run a full MBAM scan in normal mode.

    I never got exactly the behavior you describe on my Laptop. But I did get the cursor jumping all over as I typed. On my Toshiba pressing F9 turns off touchpad while typing. Perhaps there's a similar key or setting on your machine.
