got a windows 7 samsung netbook with a wireless logitec mouse which works perfect on a xp laptop, therefor suspect the netbook.

but on the netbook will be typing ok then suddenly without warning the typing will revert from from the end of the sentence to mid paragraph.

anyone got a cure or a suggestion please.

Although you're using a mouse, the "trackpad" may still be active and if you brush this accidentally, it can move the insertion point where the typing goes. If there is an option to disable the trackpad, do so and see if that resolves the problem.

Probably the Fn (Function) key plus one of the "F" keys along the top.
