My Toshiba A300 satellite pro running Vista Business with wireless internet connection, has all of a sudden started having problems with the mouse/cursur having a mind of its own. The cursur will all of a sudden be uncontrollable and will randomly open programs and internet connection etc and I cannot move it even to shut down the laptop. I updated and ran Malwarebytes and AVG 8 and they both report no problems, but strange things are happening. I seem to be able to run the laptop normally on battery power but it seems that when I connect to Mains power the mouse goes errattic. I started in Safe Mode but the problem still occurred. Have you any suggestions or have anyone come accross this problem. I hope you can help.
