My computer is showing all the signs of being infected with malware. The problem does not show up all the time - it started maybe a month ago, and I have just managed to go a whole week without seeing its effects - but it showed up again today.
Symptoms: The cursor changes either to one that is almost impossible to see (and actually sometimes disappears altogether) or one that is different from the normal one. (I tried to attach a photo of one of its typical manifestations but have not yet figured out how to do that here). It also increases the CPU activity, and the computer slows significantly. I have seen it pretty much freeze up, and on occasion fail to shut down.

I run AVG anti-malware software - a business version, not the free one. It runs rootkit, antivirus, anti -just-about-everything - but it hasn't picked up this as a virus. I have run full computer scans with no success.

Looking for some help on this.
