you most likly have a R.A.T. (remote admin tool) it is used by hackers to take over your computer so they can run bots and such on it, one way to tell is to press ctrl. alt,delete go to task mngr then look at processes & look for a remote admin tool on the list, then right click it & end task if it comes back its a presistant tool meaning you will need to run Malware remove tools like malware byte or something hope this helps

thanks for all the advice, I will have to leave this to my son.

Ok its doing it again, can a wireless mouse act goofy, it never did before,

This is what it feels like, like when you have two magnets and they are pushing against one another, I can feel it before it starts

Stormdancer you need to reboot your machine.
if it persists you need to run some scans.
if it then continues use another device.

this can get you in trouble....


I echo this advice. Try rebooting your computer. I was initially going to say that, if it's an optical mouse, then it could be something errant in the eye but clicking rules that out. You might also try disconnecting and reconnecting your mouse. Sometimes just removing and reconnecting the peripheral device resets the driver back to normal.

If it's still happening after reboot, definitely do some scans.

If you're using Chrome as your browser
Shift + Escape
Chrome has it's own Task Manager and you can detect some threats without them seeing you this way.

Any chance the mouse ball is gunked up inside and so it's 'catching' and you feel like you are fighting it? That's what happened to our old mouses ... mices .. mice ... whatever you call them.

I thought meeces don't have balls anymore...it's laser bleams now!

However, the OP could check to see if the CPU is going a dinger, and if it is, open windows task manager and see what processes are being used, and try to find out why.

Looks like your axis may be off, x axis bug.
It may do this from time to time dependent upon the surface it's on.
Or maybe turn off "enhanced pointer position" in Control Panel in Mouse Properties

Don't think you have what I thought you did... Fortunately

You're very welcome.

I had a BAD EXPERIENCE with an actual breach before and it was only for a few minutes but the aftermath was pretty substantial.
So when I see an alert of "my mouse is moving on it's own" I take notice.

When they're cheap or low on battery they will do funny stuff, but if it's clicking links without you... That's a trojan. Run a free virus scan to find and fix it, in that case. Trend Micro has a pretty cool and easy one. Google "Free Online Virus Scan". Choose the Trend one.

wireless mouse?
sometimes when the batteries start dying the mouse will act screwy
most of us disable the remote access feature too

Warning!

Do not under any circumstances lay a cheese sandwich down on your desk close to the mouse. That, obviously, is a zombie mouse. According to zombie mouse legends, they don't usually don't eat or attack their owners and your sandwich may be safe, but to be on the safe side carefully approach that one before the sun goes down and throw it into a bucket of water. Have a broom handy because it may attempt to crawl out and finally attack you. Water infuriates them. The last step is to go buy a corded mouse, the kind on a leash. That is really what that cord is for, not for the electrical connection. A last suggestion: buy a Microsoft mouse in the grey mouse color. That type is very docile and will never push back. You will find your computering much more satisfying and not have to trouble ATS experts again until your new mouse eventually eats a hole in your mouse pad and you need more help.

Usually when the mouse pointer move or jump to the corners of the screen by it's own it's cause of the surface it's working on, the laser pointer can bounce of small edges or holes in the surface.

Get a mousepad if the surface isen't completly blank.
