hi my pc went in for repairs a few weeks ago and since then at 9 00am or just after my pc starts doing things without me touching the mouse, and when i do touch the mouse it wont respond and just keeps going and clicking on things. the only way i can stop it is to force shutdown

Rod, did you fail to spot my suggestion from earlier?

thanks warlord the pc has been fine today since i unticked the allow remote, only a couple of things been installed since just before the pc went for repair and thats windows updates and one flash update. right i wont shut down again the way i did pushing power button till it goes of. the only company i let remote access to was virgin a few months ago but there was no problem with the pc till it went for repair. i will run the prog you mentioned and see what happens.

Have a look in Task Scheduler and see if anything was programmed to run at that time of day. If so disable it.

alan run task there was nothing set to run at any time. i think the prob was remote access was on and some one was connecting that way, its been ok since i unticked it

If it happens again, instead of shutting pc down - disconnect pc from the internet / Router by unplugging the Ethernet cable or if WiFi switch off WiFi on Router. You will then be able to investigate further.
