Thanks for reading. I was able to find some software patch to repair this issue until the last windows upgrade about six months ago. I cannot find a current fix. I hate the touchpad and turn it off frequently because it will click to wherever the cursor is randomly. I assume it is because my thumb is hovering near the touchpad. I changed the sensitivity to the lowest possible and it still did it. I tried updating the driver. Nothing works since that update. Pavilion dv7 - qa668ua#aba

A software update solved the problem before. Then Windows updated and lost the patch for the touchpad. I don't think that it is a hardware issue. I have seen other posts elsewhere (I cannot find them now - drat) that talked about it and suggested the driver which I downloaded and solved this issue until the windows was updated.

At this point, I would recommend a system recovery. Just make sure you back up all important files before attempting this.
