This has been an ongoing problem. I've checked to see if there was that box checked for "snap to default button," however, it was never checked. I ran a scan for the "peper trojan," but those files were not on the system. I ran a couple other virus scans and malware scans, but to no avail. I did also run a Hijackthis and will include the log file below. I haven't messed with drivers yet because it is the embedded mouse for the tablet I'm using. I don't use any other mouse devices. I do use a tablet pen regularly. The problem is frequent and random. I can see it happening from across the room, which is to say, I'm not hitting a button by accident. There is no external mouse or wireless mouse involved.

Hoping for a ray of light.
Thanks in advance
Dave

The touchpad has drivers...all drivers can become damaged.

I'd try uninstalling the drivers for the touchpad (via Device Manager), then rebooting so that they reinstall...before I assumed anything more drastic than that.

I think it worked! I'll monitor it for the rest of the day.
Thanks
