I have had this problem in the past with my last box.
This box of now 4 yrs just got it today.
Happens when I go online, no specific site, can't pin it down to a specific site, even did it on this one.
This time, I was on eBay of which I do to, many times a day.
Mouse starts to scroll down at will, can't drag back up, starts to highlight things at will, flashes like a Christmas tree! Can't close browser but was able to run Malwarebytes, went to Outlook and it went crazy again.
I immediately went to Malwarebytes and HiJackTHis and it showed nothing, that actually is normal except for one time, it fouodn something, but may be coninsidentally.
If I reboot all is oK until I go online again, althougth so far since it happened this AM all is going well now, but I know from the past

In the past I have been directed to Combo Fix and have used it several times.

In reasearching posts, I found this one that had a different fix:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic437258.html/page__p__2553497__hl__erratic+mouse__fromsearch__1#entry2553497

Malwarebytes log of quick and full scan to follow, nothing found in HiJackThis that was NOT in my "do not check list"

XP pro
Microsoft Essentials
Malwarebytes run weekly
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.60.0.1800
www.malwarebytes.org

Database version: v2012.01.24.03

Windows XP Service Pack 3 x86 NTFS
Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702

Hello, I feek this is not malware but we'll double check. if after this the issue exists. Repost in External hardware for more help.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check Posted Image and check Remove found threats
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image


NOTE: In some instances if no malware is found there will be no log produced.

ok found some threats...I just happened to see ZUGO in my registry and deleted it before the scan but must have been some residual "stuf"

Thanks,

I'll see if that fixes it...has not happened again since yesterday.
