This has been on going for a while, and I finally got smart and thought to ask you guys here.
I bought mycomputer second hand, but practically new.
HP, running XP.
Soon after I got on the net, I started having issues with my computer randomly opening and closeing programs, and the mouse screaming across the
screen, even when I wasn't touching it.
Or the mouse would freeze, and you couldn't even turn it off by the start button.
It did this while I was sleeping one afternoon, (working 3rd shift), and my daughter kept plugging, and unplugging the computer, and burnt out the
harddrive.. everything got wiped, and I needed to get a new hard drive.
Soon after getting the new drive, the same thing started happening.
Once in a while, running adaware, I'll get some kind of spy ware, but even clearing these out does nothing. Anti Virals pick up nothing.
I started running mozilla, because I can open two tabs, and that keeps the net window from shutting on me.
I have downloaded these things Mozilla, the latest Yahoo Mesenger, and the latest WMP.
I also downloaded something called SUPER, and FLVplayer, and some codecs a while back, but I had already been experiencing these problems before I got
the codecs, which I may or may not have installed, I honestly don't remember, but they were clean.
This is driving me crazy, every 5-10minutes, I have to ctrl/alt/delete to get the mouse to stop going crazy, and shut down any windows or programs
that might have opened, cancel anthing that say do you want to.. and then I might have 5 minutes before it happens again.
Today, I tried sys restoring to my earliest resore point, but the restoration didn't go through, and I had to go to a slightly younger point.. BUT it
is still happening.
Any clues as to what is going on, and what I can do to try to fix it?
