Every ten minutes or so, my mouse cursor will go beyond my control for several minutes. It starts moving around on it's own, and I can't move it much on my own. I don't mean a slight tremble, I'm talking about the cursor rapidly shooting from the top to the bottom of the screen, back and forth. Sometimes it will stick to the top or bottom, to where I can only move the cursor left and right, and it stays this way for minutes.

I unplugged the mouse, and started watching a movie. The cursor still moves on it's own, so it's not the mouse itself.

I tried scanning with Spybot, AdAware, and AVG, and I'm finding nothing.

What is going on with this, and does anyone know how I can fix it?


Any help is very much appreciated.

Im not using a wireless connection, either. I think its a joke program, I check the process tabs when it happens nothing.

Have you tried using a different mouse?

Have a look at Mouse pointer moves erratically or does not respond when you use a Microsoft pointing device.
This article contains information about how to modify the registry. Make sure that you back up the registry before you modify it.

In addition, If it's an optical, you may want to look at you mouse pad. I know of past issues where certain pads pal havoc with optical mice.

Its not my mouse. It stops when I prest ctrl+alt+del. If I unplug the mouse it still does it. Its not my mouse. I've switched pads and mice. I even did that, it still is screwy.

The following is an excerpt from the link I provided.

When you use a Microsoft pointing device on a Microsoft Windows-based computer, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
The pointer may move erratically.
The pointer may not respond when you move the pointing device.
Nothing happens when you click a button on the pointing device.
The pointing device may stop working after several minutes of use.


It is not referring to the mouse, but the cursor and definitely worth having a look at.

Darkfire,

Since you have an open HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum, you shouldn't make any changes to your system.
That could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.
