Solved: Erratic cursor movements

I've been plagued with erratic cursor movements while typing. The cursor jumps to a new place and typing continues there, or it will jump someplace totally outside the area. I had been using a Logitech laser mouse, then tried a brand new Logitech wireless model, and then a new Microsoft standard model - same problem with each one. It's driving me mad! In addition, the cursor will start jumping around on its own, sometimes resulting in a portion of the screen fonts being highlighted. It occurs in all apps. I'm using Win7 Pro. I hope you can help me. Thanks!
