Loss of cursor and online connection

  woodsap 19:53 09 Aug 2013

Whilst typing anything (word, e-mail, box filling) I frequently lose the cursor. Also when online the connection is almost always interrupted when typing. I have tried a new k/b, new mouse and run the Windows 7 recovery disc, all without a solution. The cursor will return with a left mouse click. Can anybody suggest a solution? If not this 30 month old HP Desktop is going to the tip.

Sounds as if you have a Toolbar that is constantly checking for updates and taking the focus off the window you are working in (which is why left mouse click brings it back as focus is then back on the window you are typing in). Ask Toolbar is the usual culprit, do you have that installed?
