Help! Possible Virus

  kelemvor 20:17 18 Oct 2003

Hi, I'm having difficulty with what I believe is a virus on my PC.

Basic symptoms: Every now and again my mouse goes crazy (moves like lightning) and starts opening up different programs/files etc.

I'm running XP and have tried a re-install and a full install of XP to try to purge anything from the hard disk but this hasn't resolved anything!

Also, I installed a copy of AVG 6.0 anti virus software, but this couldn't find anything.

I'd be greatful for any help/suggestions.

I had a friend with this problem once, we thought it was a virus/Trojan but it turned out to be a dodgy mouse cable with maybe a intermittent break in one of the wires. Do you have another mouse you could try to eliminate this possibility?

Actually my mouse is only about 18 months old so I don't think that's it, however, I will try using another one to see what happens.
