My mouse keeps getting stuck; at first I thought it was because it needed cleaning, so I cleaned it. But now, it's frozen up twice (one time both it and the computer froze up). I scanned for spyware and I don't have any, but could it be from a virus?

majority of the faults from mouse would be a hardware failure.

however, Are you refering to desktop or notebook mouse?

Try another mouse to see if the problem persist. Thats the best way to test it out.
The Uprise of a new Technology is the contributing factor to the failure of many human brains.
In short ==== We are too reliant on Technology.

I'm using a desktop mouse. Also, I checked, and I did have one virus-- one of the Trojan ones.

Is the mouse wireless? If so, you might be getting a weak signal. I assume you have a ball-mouse, since you've talked about cleaning it....... do they make wireless ball mouses........? If not, then completely disregard the above rambling....

it could be alot of things your temporay internet files are full and we need to know what you were doing when your mouse started acting up were you playing a game or does it happen when your at a certain web site give us as much info as you can these guys that work here are pretty good they can solve just about any problem and put down your system specs your hard drive may be full or you could be loaded up with cookies also if it is not a wireless mouse check your connection where you plug it in or try another port to plug it in to see ya

And.......
Did the software which found the Trojan delete it?
Did it come back after the next boot?
After you took care of the Trojan did your mouse start functioning correctly?
