missing cursor

  mnopq 18:48 31 Dec 2010

On a number of occasions, whilst typing in Word and Outlook Express, the cursor disappears and the text I am typing no longer appears on the screen. When I then use the mouse to re-position the cursor at the end of the existing text I can continue to type normally.Any ideas ?

Are you using a laptop/notebook/netbook computer? If so it could be that you are touching the Touch Pad with your wrist while you are typing. You may be able to disable your Touch Pad when you type and enable it again afterwards.

Sorry, it is a desktop machine. Presumably not software as it happens on two programs, but they are both Microsoft, so it could be.
