hello
I updated the software update (the update I don't know how to tell what was added - but it added the app store icon automatically)

since then
1) MacBook keeps flicking thru the desktop open apps
though I have not touched my keyboard
2) every so often cursor moves by itself and opens finder then creates a new folder
3) lost ability to use trackball
occasionally after I reboot, I get 1 min of trackball usage but that's it

any ideas if it's the software update that did this?
or have I inadvertedly tapped a key to cause this wierd behaviour

thanks in advance

Sounds like you've got a stuck key.

In turn try repeatedly pressing the command/option/tab/shift keys and then see if the behaviour goes away

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post

i use a trackpad not a mouse
ive checked all the keys
