There's a problem with my computer. Every now and then, my mouse goes (on its own) to the top right corner and closes the window by itself.

It tries to do this every half an hour or so. Can see that it goes there and repeatedly clicks till it closes the maximized windows.

Right now I've not maximised any windows, but it still tries to go there and click them.

I've run Ad-aware 6, Spybot S&D, Trojan Remover, Pest Patrol, and they all haven't found anything.

Here's my Hijack This log. Nothing suspicious there either.

I'm also going to try a new mouse. Maybe that's the problem. Will let you know if it works. Till then, please let me know if there's anything else I can try..

That sound strange that you would see something like that. It actually sounds like someone is connected to your machine and controlling your computer.

Do you know what the below program is?

O4 - Global Startup: Entrust.lnk = C:\WINNT\system32\etlitr50.exe

Yeah, it's an encryption package.

I've tried everything, and noticed others have had similar situations. No solution yet tho..





Any answers would be appreciated. It's a major pain when youre working on excel and the cursor goes there and shuts it down..

I've read your posts & links...can certainly understand the emoticon you used...
the hours I've spent tracking information have brought to my mind unfamiliar emotions.
  • I can only sympathize with you...I have no answer.
  • (I'm seeking help here, not qualified to give advice to you)
  • your assembling the links and presenting them is remarkably resourceful, IMHO
I hope for a resolution to the problem and will say no more so you can get on with it.
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...

Nope.. New mouse didnt work either..

It doesn't look like it is being controlled. It moves too fast for that..

Well if it is being controlled we should be able to see it as there will be a strange programming listening on a port on your computer. Please do the following:

Download this file:


Save it to the c:\ drive.

Then click on start, run, and type cmd and press the ok button.

At the cmd prompt, type the following:

cd \ and press enter

fport > fport.txt and press enter.

notepad fport.txt and press enter.

Copy and paste the contents of the notepad to a reply to this message.

Ok guys, I found the problem.. It was my mouse. After Pestscan, Spybot, Ad Aware, and a host of other utilities did not find anything on my computer, I tried using another mouse.

And it works. I'm not sure why the problem didn't go away when I tried using another mouse the first time. But anyways, it has now gone and I have control of my computer again.

Thank you all for all your help and for your patience.
