This could all be a horrible coincidence ! Have you tried a different mouse just to eliminate the possibility that your mouse has gone faulty ?
If it is not your mouse, and you know what file it was, I would delete it from your EHD before you go any further. Then, if you feel you have to do a re-install, disconnect the EHD, re-install your operating system and any applications you want to, including your Norton and Malwarebytes, before you plug your EHD back in.
Autorun is that feature that brings up a panel asking you what you want to do when you when you put a CD or DVD into the player, or connect any form of external storage. It is not in itself a risk, the risk is that you blindly click 'Yes' without considering what is going to happen, and, if you want, it can be completely disabled in Control Panel.
When you get round to connecting your EHD, autorun will probably run - cancel it and do FULL Norton and Malwarebytes scans on the EHD before you copy any files. This should show up any problems, and any files with problems can be deleted before you let them back into your system. But check your mouse first !
