Hey guys, I'm pretty sure this is a virus. Before I even had this problem windows was acting up, saying that it couldn't load my user file(and everyone else's except for 1 person) and had to log into a temporary user account. I turned off my computer and turned it back on.

I nearly had a heart attack.
I logged in to see my start menu open up by itself and my mouse cursor move by itself over to the top program in my start menu- Google chrome. Google chrome never opened, and the start menu closed shortly after but I was very afraid. I plugged out my modem and router because I thought I was being hijacked over the internet.

I logged into a different account and it happened again, but this time the mouse cursor moved to the second application, which was Microsoft office outlook.

I feel sick and am currently running SuperAntiSpyware...
Please , I will greatly appreciate any help!

This is getting more and more interesting...
It appears that the first user to log into my windows xp machine does not have the 'switch users' sounds. Other users can get the sound fine except for the first user to log in on startup.

I have not experienced the mouse moving or the start menu opening again, but this is very unnerving. On a sidenote facebook once gave me a 101 error message (using google chrome) and wouldn't load at all for a few minutes. I'm not sure if that's a problem with facebook or if I have a worm.
