Hi,

I've used this forum once before and I got some excellent help. I was hoping I'd be able to get some help again. I think I may have a virus, although McAfee doesn't detect anything when I run a virus scan. The main problem is that everytime I click on something, whether it's a doc, folder, clicking on webpage, moving the curser to a desired loccation and clicking, it gives me a double click even when I've only clicked once. It's quite annoying and it used to happen randomly, but it's been happening more and more lately. I checked to see if it's the mouse set up, but the mouse is set up properly (i.e single click is set as a single click, not a double click.)

If someone could please help me out, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

Although this could possibly be from some sort of "twisted virus", the possibility of your mouse itself having problems is more likely.

Have you tried another mouse entirely?

Hi,

Thank you for responding. Yes, I tried another mouse and it still gives me the same double click problem. When I did my google search to see if other people had this problem and how they went about resolving it, I came across a post from bleepingcomputer.com where someone had the same exact problem that I'm having. Here's the link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/285595/infected-with-the-double-click-viruscookiead-ware-worm/. I don't know if that helps or not, but perhaps it gives you an idea of what my symptoms are like and if it could be a virus of some sort.

Thanks again for taking the time to help me out.

Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic from step 9.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.

Thanks boopme! I posted my log in the Malware Removal topic forum. Gmer didn't run for me, so I skipped it. It froze my computer and I had to restart.

You're welcome. Someone will be along to review the log and advise.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
