My cursor keeps moving by itself and i think i have been hacked. i have a touchscreen monitor but there is nothing on it or near it so i doubt it is that. How would i know i have been hacked?

I doubt you have been hacked. I had this problem with my trackpad and I've noticed it happen on other touch screens too. Remove the external mouse to see if that helps, and if it doesn't, try cleaning the screen or updating the drivers.

yup its the track pad was driving me crazy for months I couldnt find an update for mine, whenI switched to ubuntu 12.04 it has a feaature that disables the track pad while typeing no more bouncing cursor ..
for some reason not sure if its most up to date driver which it most likely is make the pad so sensitive it picks up shadows as you type seemingly the cursor bounces randomly ..
if you cant find a new tark pad driver see if you can down grade it if you have the newest if worse comes to worse get a wireless mouse and disable the track pad ..
