I have an Acer Aspire laptop that is giving me problems. When I use the touchpad it is like it is on auto-pilot. I move it around and it just starts clicking on every icon it hovers over. When I press F7 AND FN IT DISAbles the touchpad and I can use it fine with the mouse. Is this something that is wrong with the mouse/touchpad settings, a Virus or something else I am not considering. It is actually doing the same crazy stuff when using an external Mouse. It is just clicking things automatically when I move over the icons. It is also happening in safe mode. It is like the Laptop is on steroids. Suggestions ; Software, hardware or a virus. I just replaced the screen on the Laptop. Thanks Let me know if you have some suggestions or need anymore information from me.

Try reinstalling the driver/s, get the recent driver/s from your manufacture's website.

You ask if it's a virus. The best way to find out is to run a full system scan with both your anti virus app AND MalwareBytes. While a "clean" report isn't 100% definitive, it will be more informed than we can be ;)
