    Mouse Cursor Moves Away


    Hi ,
    This forum is like a paradise for the people who are using Windows 8 or 8.1

    If i have few software open and same time i open the file explorer on the top of it and by using external or internal mouse try to select my HDD or USB drives on the left pane, the mouse cursor always jump away from the file explorer window ( all the actions are Desktop version i am talking about).And i need to minimize all other software in order to select/click C: D: or my USB flash drives. It drive me crazy. It happens in other places of file explorer as well. Like if i try to attach a file to email and dialog box where it has paths to HDD the same thing happens.

    Is it a bug ? how to fix it ? is it fixable or not?

    I am using Window 8.1 , Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro , Intel i7

    I hope to get the help from the great expertise here.

    I see a lot of people have trouble with those track pads. With Synaptics uninstalled does it then load another driver, like an MS driver? Do you have the settings set to a faster setting?

    Glad you got it fixed, but I think I wasn't much help. Kind of odd that an addon was the cause.
