Last month, my Logitech wireless laser mouse started acting buggy, floating around at random times and not responsive. I felt like you, that a keylogger had somehow hijacked my computer right before my eyes and believe me, I immediately commenced to run a barrage of AV scans, rootkit and a bunch of stuff. I've already got three programs that block keylogging. Anyway, that lasted all day but nothing was detected.
That mouse floating crap was driving me nuts, and no, I didn't type NO passwords.
The next day, a thought that maybe it was the mouse. I noticed that a tiny, faint red light on top of the mouse glowed dimmly, fading in and out. I had never really paid it much mind. So, I looked in the book and it said this indicated a low battery.
Well I'll be damned. I bought the mouse six months ago and this is the first time the battery needed changing. I change the AA battery and WHOA LA!! No more floating mouse (mine also tended toward the 'files' tab, but, it never actually "clicked" on anything).
Are you sure about the clicking part? I've never heard of this. And hey, next time it clickes on Files, let it go on to see what it clicks on next! Let me know (ha)!
Anyways, try changing the battery. CilyPudi must go to bed now. Good luck.
