My cursor goes up to the red X in the upper right corner and closes out my browser by iteslf. This started a few months ago. It does it when I am using my computer, typing, or just letting it sit idle, it doesn't matter. Sometimes it does it every few minutes several times in a row, or sometimes it doesn't do it for an hour or so, it is very random. The cursor will just shoot up quickly to the red X and close out. It is really irritating.

I have tried a new mouse, adjusting settings on my mouse, and a few other fixes that are common on internet help sites, but it hasn't helped.

I was told by someone at Geek Squad that it is a virus. I have run Rkill and Malwarebytes, but it didn't help.

I had downloaded some pics off of an international website (no, not a porn site) and the problem seems to have started about that time, so possible virus here?

 

Would appreciate some help.

 

Thank you

http://codestuff.tripod.com/products_starter.html See if you can pinpoint what is in the startup entries and disable it. Have you run MBAM or SuperAntiSpyware in safemode?

Have run MBAM in safe mode, but have not run SuperAntiSpyware in any mode yet, will try.

I don't know if I would know what to pinpoint in the startup. I am not very experienced with computers.
