I'd like to control the cursor by moving my finger on the surface of my Magic Mouse, rather than scrolling the screen. Insert long story about shoulder injury. Is this possible?

I have a new laptop (Acer with Windows 8) and the touchpad will intermittently go all goofy.

My question: Is there any chance that a third-party power cord is causing this? [more inside]

I have a Dell laptop. Oftentimes, while "mousing around" using the touchpad, it will unintentionally highlight things. This is a behavior that I never, ever want. Also, sometimes it will unintentionally "grab on to things," like graphics on a webpage, and try to drag them around. I do not ever want to highlight or grab things using the touchpad. This "feature" messes me up CONSTANTLY. My last Dell laptop did the same thing. Is there any way to turn this "feature" off permanently?

I need help locating a source for lightly textured (as opposed to glossy) PDA screen protectors or a similar material in bulk, but it seems like everything out there is glossy and clear! I don't use them on a PDA, but as replaceable surfaces on my laptop's touchpad so I'm open to trying something other than a screen protector. Any ideas? [more inside]

How can I give them something to fix?
