Laptop which keeps going "back" BY ITSELF

My Laptop (and another identical laptop of the same brand) always goes "BACK" a page by itself (as in internet browser) and it's seriously driving me mad. I did not press any "back" button nor the backspace button. What gives?

Are you using an external mouse?

The "identical" laptop tidbit says that the keyboard layout is so that you keep inadvertently hitting the backspace.

Hi GT500Shlby, thanks for your reply.

No, I am not using an external mouse, I'm just using the touchpad. Sometimes when I'm typing (well far from the bksp button) or have my finger on the touchpad (well far from the "back button), the cursor suddenly changes to an hourglass and it goes back a page.

You may have some driver issues. Or some sort of Mouse Gesture software that is doing it. On my NC6220 of I make a certain gesture on the touch pad it will go back, forward, scroll up and down, etc...

I guess it's the latter. How could I rid of this mouse gesture software thing?
