I have what appears to be a virus that frequently and repeatedly moves the mouse to the lower left of the screen and clicks on the Windows Start Menu.  It sometimes starts one of the news or movie applications on the windows start popup menu.  Have tried completely reloading windows (allowing it to remove all my files and programs), removed batteries from mouse and keyboard to make sure it was not a defect or short in those, tried some things I saw online with regard to unchecking mouse precision option, and virus protection software does not seem to detect it.  My reading online seems to indicate the virus may be on the master boot, but I sure would appreciate some help getting rid of this off my computer...it makes it very difficult to get anything done because by the time you go to enter data in a field, the cursor bounces over to the "start" then you are typing a program to search for in the start menu instead of where you intended to type. 


I had posted this 20/March but never received any replies, so am reposting.  Sophie
