yeah but its not coming up with anything thats exactly the problem I am facing. What happens is I have no control over the mouse. Than my screen keeps changing from the applications I have open to the launchpad and mission control screens. Over and over again and I cant stop it. I have zero control.

Check out the following KB Articles:
If you are still under warranty and/or have AppleCare, give them a call and let them deal w/it.

How old is your Mac?
How old is your battery? This weird trackpad action was the same thing that happened to me when my 3 year old battery started to swell. As it swelled it pressed up on the trackpad and caused all sorts of almost ghost like mouse pointer movements...many all on it's own. The battery itself still held a charge.
I took the battery out and could barely see where it had swelled. I then ran my MacBook Pro with battery out on the MagSafe adapter. No more ghost mouse pointer movements, resizing, dragging and clicking.
If you can remove the battery DIY, try what I did.
I then installed a new battery and everything is back to normal.

I've had it for about a year and a half. Thanks though I will definitely check the battery or bring it to someone who can.

I believe I have the same issue as you have described. It started a few days ago. I'm using a mid 2010 MBP 15 inch running OSX 10.8.2
I have nothing connected to the computer
The only way I can contiue to use the machine is with my Bluetooth Apple Mouse.
No idea if the following is in anyway related
I have also noticed that the system has crashed several times recently (a trend that started with my move to Lion and has got worse with Mountain Lion - the computer is also much slower to start than it used to be)
Just in typing this about every sixth word and the lookup feature was invoked triggering dictionary defnitions to be displayed. The screedictionary was invoked, the screen has zoomed in and out several times. The display has flipped to the dashboard several times and to Launchpad three times.
I moved to Apple to get away from machines and software that didn't work properly...
Any/all help/advice welcome!
Thanks in advance.

I am having exactly the same problem the past couple of days....also had since mid 2010 and installed Mountain Lion. Did your problem get resolved and if so, how did you fix it? Thanks in advance.

It's generally better to start your own Topic, rather than adding onto an existing one which has no activity in 3 months!.
Please start a new topic about your issue so it can receive more focused attention.
It would help us to know which computer model you have, which OS you're using, how much RAM, etc. You can have this info displayed on the bottom of every post by completing your system profile and filling in the information asked for.
This will help in providing you with the proper and/or correct solutions.
Please detail ALL you have done so far in the way of troubleshooting? Need this info to avoid the been there done that scenarios.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Original MBP (2/2008)

@Baby Boomer (USofA) - thanks for that. I wasnt sure if a new thread duplicating an existing thread was the wat=y to go or adding my issue to an existing thread showing the sam esymptoms. I chose the latter and it seems my 50-50 call was wrong. Apologies.
I have resolved my issue now by taking it to an Apple authorised reparier. I had a faulty logic board which was replaced by Apple and there was also a fault on the track pad. All fixed and running smoothly now.
I guess the lesson I have learned is to seach these forums and others - see what has happened in similar cases and if there is no obvious solution then start a new thread and/or take it to a professional.

Thanks for the reply. BTW that bit of advice was not from me...it was Apple moderator.
