Hi, I'm having problems with my mouse. At totally random points in time my cursor starts moving by it self and clicking and dragging icons etc. It's quite a funny thing to see actually. First I was afraid of a Trojan or Hijack attempt but I used spywareblaster, spybot search and destroy and ad-aware and I don't seem to have any virus or trojan.
I have a logitch optical mouse so I went to the logitech-site and they tell me to update a program called setpoint. I did install it but it doesn't help. I have no idea what this program does anyway!?
My mouse is clean, there is no dust and i'm using wood as surface, this has always worked fine.

Does anybody have an idea what I can do against this?

tx,

weizman,
Have you tried disconnecting your mouse, then going to Device Manager and removing and reinstalling the drivers? You mentioned it has always worked before - with this mouse? Have you tried placing a piece of white copy paper under the mouse to see if the reflectivity is causing it to go erratic (optical sensor is red); e.g., did you recently polish your wood table top? If you can try another mouse, does the erratic movement/clicking happen? When you ran your spyware programs, did you run them in Safe Mode?
