    windows 10 download self selecting and jumping all over the place

    Hi, I have downloaded windows 10. I am having an aweful problem with my pointer - it self selects anything and everything. If left on a page it increases or decreases the viewing percentage. I looked in settings but couldn't see anything there to stop this.

    I don't know where to leave my pointer now, can someone help with this one please. I have have win 10 for 2 days now and it has not improved even with updates.
