I have Microsoft Office 2013 Professional installed on my new Dell Laptop. I have been a proud owner of Microsoft Office since 1997. This is the first time my cursor has been displaying demonic characteristics. I am in the middle of creating a writing project and all at once my cursor has moved from its appointed place to the top thus ruining my previous paragraph with letters that belong elsewhere. In fact I had to move to my desktop which has Office 2007 to finish this. My son told me he hated Office 2010 but it doesn’t compare to this. I have to spend more time looking at every letter to insure it is in its proper place.
Do I need an exorcist?

No mine happens off and on and it is my laptop, I don't use a mouse.
Yep ... it only happens on Word. I have even tried typing one word at a time (and I type close to 80 wpm) and not only is this irritating but tedious. Oh ... by the way, I use a mouse that I can connect to the laptop so it doesn't need a battery.
