When I open the IE version 6, it works for a short time then the mouse becomes unstable that it moves around and opens several windows and then shuts off the explorer. I cannot figure out what is going. Any ideas?

Um, the mouse actually moves around the screen and clicks on different things?

Sounds like you are getting hacked, most likely through remote desktop or something similar.

Click Start >> hover over my computer >> right click >> properties >> click the remote tab

Disable your choices there.

Hi rockville,

Just another suggestion. Do you have a firewall? If not, please consider installing one of the following:ZoneAlarm is more automatic so a bit little easier to use; Comodo gives you a better overview so you can see more easily what is being blocked.

If your computer is being hacked, following lowtek's advice as well as making sure your security settings are at least set to medium and installing a firewall should help.

Please note that there are other reasons for erratic behavior from a mouse. Is the mouse wireless? What company makes it? Are there other computers in your home that are also using a wireless mouse? I do know of a case where a child in one room was using a mouse and causing movement in his father's mouse because their signals got connected. This also caused programs to turn on and off. If it is a wireless mouse, you may want to check it by substituting in a wired mouse.

Another thing to consider would be to scan for malware.
Please post back if we found the solution
