I have noticed this in the last few days. Mostly on FaceBook and reddit. When I am viewing a FB photo in an album and click the left or right arrow to advance to the next image, the next image displays. Then the mouse cursor flashes briefly and the folder advances to the next image. On reddit, when I click the plus sign on the box that expands the image, the image enlarges for a few seconds and then closes again.
I'm also noticing some strange activity in my browser ~ Chrome. I sometimes have to click the back button several times before the previous page will load. When viewing links at Amazon.com, I have to double click the back button to view the previous page. Single clicking only refreshes the same page.
I notice this only seems to be an issue with Chrome. I've updated to the most recent version and also updated Windows. I've disabled any plugins that might affect mouse functionality ~ as far as I know. I've also tried several different mice, both wired and wireless.
These are just a few issues I'm having right now. My system has been running very slow with long load times and strange surfing behavior. But the mouse problem is the most annoying. Not sure if this is a Chrome issue, a browser bug or an infection. I would love to have my system scanned to see if this or any other issues turn up.
I'm running Windows 7 SP1
Chrome Version 36.0.1985.143 m
4GB DDR2 (PC2-6400) Ram
