Hi, i seem to have a problem that started about 4 months ago.
I have a Microsoft PS/2 Mouse, a Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 2.
My computer has seem to have caught a virus that has a few problems.
1. Sometimes when i move my mouse a bit around the mouse rapidly right and left clicks.
2. Whenever i left click, right click is also activated.
3. The only way i can seem to maneuver is by using end task which is activated by ctrl, alt, delete.
4. Whenever i'm typing it occasionally or rapidly right clicks.
5. When i enter a game that uses right click, right click automatically keeps being used.

And these are the things i've tried.
1. Getting a new mouse, same symptoms happening.
2. Getting a new mouse pad.
3. Pressing, practically smashing right click really hard and it's only fixed it about 3 times for a minute or two.
4. Anti-Viruses, Norton and such to get rid of viruses, and it's been able to detect a few but somehow not able to delete them, i've erased the viruses once before but they seem to come back. And i just cant seem to get rid of these viruses.

And plus, ever since trying to get rid of the viruses my computer has gradually become slower and slower.
Internet browsing, opening folders, games and whatnot.
Anybody have any idea about what i can do?

Welcome to BC

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.36) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
