I would be happy to remove whatever is on their computer. I have a hard time writing papers on this computer because it clicks on a different part of my wordpad program rather than staying where is suppose to be. When it clicks, it cuts in a different sentence and gets on my nerves. Sometimes it deletes what i type and thats even worse when your typing a paper. Ever since I would have to deal with this I have to repeatedly press ctrl s to save and keep pressing undo command on wordpad for it o go back where i was typing. So this problem is time consuming. Also when I'm loading other programs it points somewhere else on my screen.


I tried to run malewarebytes and as always perform quick scan but its not picking up anything.

Sometimes when you rest your cursor wherever and start typing or using a program, it seems as if it keeps clicking on that spot but im not clicking anything. Majority of the time its clicking and clicking wherever u rest the cursor and clicking at random areas. Sometimes it would randomly move to another spot. I always have to keep the cursor away from everything so it doesn't press anything, but now forces the window to minimize and starts messing w/ u again.

What is the antivirus you have in the PC?

This Computer runs vista. I don't think it has an antivirus program. I don't think it never had one ; ; I've been using malwewarebytes (anti-maleware) using quick scan.

i also noticed when i'm loading a web browser it keeps stopping the page from loading. It refuses to load that i have to close the window. I play a flash game online with other people and i hate to when it stops the flash game =(. I can't pretty much play anymore. I can play the regular flash games, but not the ones where you find an open game and you join it. Like when play neopets keyquest, for example, (of course it reloads page from time to time becuz its a flash game) but it stops the browser and then gameover for me because when the page stops, i'm no longer in in the game.

i DISCOVERED the problem. My arm and hands always hover over the mouse touch pad. I tried positioning my hands on left and right side {away from the touch mouse pad on my laptop and haven't experienced not a single click so I believe it was my sliding thumb over the area that caused the constant clicking.

Thank you for letting us know.
