Check your batteries in your Trackpad, if they are okay you should restart your computer in recovery mode (holding down the Command + R keys while restarting) then run disk utility on your hard drive to repair it.

Excuse my ignorance but I don't know how to change the batteries or perhaps I cannot do that.
My Macbook pro is silver and has operating system of
There is no way to get access to it, unless I went under the hood. There is no direct access to just the trackpad.
This seems to happen when I am on the net and I am touch scrolling using the trackpad (with Inertia)
It's very disconcerting that it is not just one application that freezes, but the computer as a whole and that I don't even have access to my cursor.
I have run disk utility afterwards in hopes that it would repair it but with no luck.

You are correct that battery can't be replaced without taking the bottom cover off, don't do that. Try resetting your SMC, take a look at this link http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964 If you are still having problems with it try resetting your NVRAM, take a look at this link, http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1379

I have the same problem! My track pad also seems to be possessed-- my cursor will start opening and moving applications, when I'm not even touching the trackpad. Is anyone else having this issue?

Did you try what I stated in the previous post?

I am having the same problem. Tried resetting both as described above. Did not solve the problem.
