Touchscreen on my BB Playbook is acting crazy.

Hi, I have a 32 Gig Playbook that is acting crazy, like I am constantly and randomly touching the screen.  It keeps radonly opening programs and what not.


I cleaned the screen.  Did a hard reset, holding the Vol + and - and the power for 15 seconds with no help.


I don't have time to do a factory reload of the software tonight, but that is the only thing I can think of to do at this point.


Any help would be much appreciated.
