Cursor and page jump in Windows 8

The cursor and page jump all over the place when I plug in the new serial adaptor (compatible with windows 8). Before I had to do a system restore on the new windows 8 laptop I got in March (since the windows 8 was corrupted), some one helped me find the opencpn.ini file and make a correction necessary to connect my Garmin GPS and all worked fine. However, I forgot what I did, lost my notes (and any other excuse possible) and haven't a clew as to how to fix this.

Any ideas?

Disable Serial Mouse: Right click Computer - select "Manage" -> "Computer Management -> Device Manager -> Mice and other pointing devices". Right click Serial Mouse (might read something else, but should contain "serial" something, disable device and confirm.

This is quite typical, and happens nearly on all windows computers.
