My HP laptop is exhibiting a really strange behavior. The pointer repositions at the bottom left bringing up the big ugly Winten start screen. If I happen to be typing when it happens, the text goes into the search box! It has done this 3 times while typing this post. Mad | :mad:

Strangely, it started doing this last weekend, but seemed to quit after I disabled the trackpad. I used the laptop all day yesterday without issues and thought the problem was resolved. (or at least handled) When I got home and hooked it up (to synch offline files) it started doing it again, but really bad, sometimes several times in a minute! WTF | :WTF:

Damn! It's just done it again!..and again!

What I've tried:
0: disabling the trackpad
1: disconnected the wireless mouse
2: stepped away from the machine...yep, it does this unattended...to the point that it keeps it from going into sleep/standby.
3: disabled Cortana
4: constructed and donned a tinfoil hat to eliminate unintended telekinesis effect
5: ran a full virus scan
6: tried to reason with it nicely
7: profanity

It's done it again a few more times while putting together this list...really nice to be typing and have your search start going crazy. If I don't notice before hitting Enter, there's no telling what might launch! Mad | :mad:

If it keeps up, I'll try rolling it back to a restore point...or hire a priest! Laugh | :laugh:
