Okay here's the problem, I recently bought a new laptop, an acer aspire 5520 and during the intial setup and for the first few hours there were no problems, then after pluging in a new mouse my mouse suddenly has fits, randomly moving about 2 to 3 inchs to the left of the point it should be at and it almost continuously left clicks about once or twice a second. I've tried unpluging the new mouse and it still has the fits, and it only seems to happen when I'm in the middle of a game (which may just be my bad luck). The mouse specs are Microsoft model 1020 optical mouse and the only two games I've played are spoor and civ 4 and the fits happened in each of them. I tried disabling the mouse drivers and it didn't fix the problem untill I uninstalled the ps/2 driver and then it reinstalled the driver. It's been about 25 minutes now and another fit hasn't happened so I hope it was simply a driver glitch, however I thought I'd post this here and ask if anyone else has had something similar and if so how they fixed the problem or if I havn't fixed to have someone else tell me what to try before my computer has another fit. As a side note I ran Malware bytes, trend micro's housecall online, and McAfee and none of them picked up on any viruses or malware. Thanks for any info you can offer.
