Hi all. A few days ago my mouse would randomly stop working for a few (3-5) seconds and I would hear a windows tone. This activity occurs randomly and is not in a pattern. My first thought was malware or a rootkit. I run malware-bytes and spy bot search and destroy, with nothing found >fully protected< >no issues found<. After deep scans by both of these this activity still occurs. I tried Viper as well still no issues found. However I know I am infected. Several years ago I was infected with a beeping rootkit. I tried everything I knew but this code was very well written as it would morph and hide. In that case I had to do a complete reformat of my DH, and reinstall. I am a very cautious user. Any ideas? I recently replaced my wireless router and secured it. Running W 7 on a dell machine, thank you for your time and suggestions. Gill
