think i have a bug in my pc, the mouse pointer moves all over the screen without me touching mouse. on its travels an icon it moves over it tries opening the file or right clicking it. basically random mouse operations all over the pc. happens in safe mode or real mode using w98se. have unchecked everthing in msconfig etc. can't restore to earlier registry entry and can't run any programs as i can't control mouse for long enough!!


thanks for any help

is this a wireless mouse? try changing the batteries maybe.

if wired give the ball a clean.

as its opening files this would worry me.i would run an up to date antivirus and a scan for adware and spyware etc.

do you have and antivirus? if not try click here download,update it and run it.also try adaware and spybot click here click here also update before running them.remove anything they find.

There is a "joke" program around called something like Crazy Mouse which does as you describe. Perhaps a Google would come up with something.

does safe mode work ok?

if so run spybot etc in safe mode maybe.
