    I appreciate any help anyone can provide.
    I own a 3 year old macbook 13.3 inch. I run disk utilities often and have Norton Security. I run the virus scan regularly as well.
    For some reason, while I am typing areas will highlight and then delete when I press the next key. The words I type bounce around from top to bottom and in between.
    Is my keyboard on the blink or could it be my laptop is getting ready to die?
    Again, I appreciate any insight. Thank you very much, Nancy

    Maybe you accidentally touch the trackpad?
    Take a look at System Preferences > Trackpad > (paraphrased) ignore accidental input.

    And on the matter of viruses and Norton, which is considered malware by many:
