...and I am, but this Toshiba, or rather the touchpad on the Toshiba, has this zone on it somewhere that treats a touch or a movement by my finger as a request to surf back a page in IE. I do not know where this zone is, except it is placed in the spot where I can lose the most information if I were to click the back button. I was in the middle of writing a long piece on why I hated the new cartoon on Nickelodeon "Danny Phantom". Of course, it is gone now, because of the touchpad. I could write it again, if I saw the pilot episode one more time, but I'm not going to torture myself like that anynore.

"Open in new window" is your friend.

That's the funny thing about IE... new windows inherit the history of the old one...

Some laptops have "smart" touchpads where certain zones (usually the edges) can be programmed to act as buttons or sliders. Check out your touchpad preferences -- you should be able to turn this off.

Thanks, I just found the icon in the tray for the touchpad settings and I'm now looking through the pages of control panels for the setting.
