hello, since a few days may trackpad has a very serious issue! It behaves like the click was locked. it marks text even if i just move the mouse, it drags windows when i move the mouse or opens links in safari when i just move over!

This is very anoying and i wonder if one of you has the same problem or even a solution!

problem is i am on a business trip in australia (i am from europe) and i need to work with my macbook every day and the apple store here in syd does not have time for me in the next week

have a look at your trackpad settings in System Preferences.

restart your Mac and hold down option + command + p + r until you hear the start up chime 3 times.

if that don't work, repair permissions in Disk Utility

My wife MBA had the exact same problem. Took it to Apple store and they replaced the trackpad for free.

I had tried reseting PRAM and everything I could. The problem was that when using the trackpad it sometimes was clicking even thought I didn't click. I had the tap to click disabled.

Take your into an Applestore and they should replace the trackpad... if is out warranty the trackpad is not expensive... $64 I believe.

I had same problem. It's a hardware issue, and the apple store said it was common. Overnight repair (under warranty) in my case.
