touchpad on sony pcg

I am having trouble with the touchpad on my sony pcg trs2mp Laptop which is running Windows XP.

I access the internet using AOL 9 and after some time on line the touchpad becomes gradually less responsive and then almost freezes. If I reboot it still acts the same but if I leave it until some time after it is Ok. Any ideas?

I have a Sony VIAO with a touchpad and at times the same problem occurs. I have come to the conclusion it can be due to "finger problems". If my hands (finger tips) are very dry they slide easily over the touchpad, however if they are in the least bit damp through perspiration or having just washed, they don't slide easily and the symptoms you describe occur.

Its just a thought but this could possibly be the problem ??

Thanks for advice. Unfortunately I still have the problem which only seems to have occured since installing AOL 9. AOL couldn't help suggesting I contact Sony.
