Windows 8/windows 8 surfing problem


Hi -- I bought a new laptop with windows 8, not the touch screen variety;  and find when I'm moving the mouse around on the screen it will automatically jump to a prior page -- quite annoying and I can't find either the cause or a fix.  Any ideas?

Thanks -- Gene

Hello Gene, thanks for your question!

Windows 8 please update it to Windows 8.1 in the first place. 8.1 is like the Service Packs for older Windows versions:
It fixes many problems and offers security problems, if this doesn't then it may be a driver problem with the touch input driver. in this case try the free tool "driver max" and check whether there is a newer driver for it and install that one then.

Hope this helps!
All th ebest!

Being an early adopter of Windows 8, I can answer a wide-range of questions regarding this new OS.


I had to support users regarding all kinds of Windows problems for many years, often "blind" over the telephone. I work in the IT industry for many years now filling in various positions for various IT and financial and health-care related companies.

I did an education as a Management Assistant in Informatics under the control of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in year 2003.
