(Moderators, feel free to rename or move this topic as I didn't know where to put it. I just felt that since I had Windows 7 x64 that it would be helpful to post here.)
Alright I have one for you guys to check out and try to help me with. I've had this Lachesis 5600dpi for 3 months without issue and have changed the pads, cleaned the lens, and restored the drivers to default twice to rule out the possibility of it being the mouse itself.

What is happening is that whenever I access MBAM, HijackThis, CCleaner, or SpybotS&D, my mouse will randomly dart away from the program. I know how to navigate with my keyboard, but this has grown rather tiring. I've scanned in and out of safe mode with MBAM and Microsoft Security Essentials to no avail, and even RKill didn't seem to fix it. It gets REALLY annoying whenever there's a system prompt that comes up, or an instance of Setup.exe that I actually need to install and customize the installation, with the mouse darting away.

On top of all of this, a random key is also registering as being held down constantly. It normally seems to rotate between W, S, and D, though.

The only thing I've noticed about this is that safemode deactivates this little annoyance, but it immediately causes my mouse to go to one of the corners upon normal start login at approximately the same time as wmplayer.exe starting in the task manager. I have been unable to either delete it to test since reinstalling it is easy, or keeping the process disabled.

I would appreciate any help with this matter.
