is this on a laptop, your palm tapping the touch pad when your typing

Stupid i know but you haven't got a wireless mouse your not using at the moment but use on that computer and its sending signal. Happened to someone i know, Was in laptop bag turned on.

Norton is an antivirus and not for finding malware

Depends what version. Norton Internet Security does everything

if on a desktop, unplug the mouse and see if it still moves, if not turn the mouse over and clean it underneath
I've had a very small spidersweb do this under an optical mouse

just not very well.

ratherbefishin, my wireless mouse does the same often and my theory is that like most things, computer mice go past their 'use by date' too. Somewhere I read that the mouse battery running low could be causing this but that doesn't wash with me.

No, neither that. it is wire type mouse. Cursor can jump around text anywhere and sometimes deletes whole paragrahps? I've run Norton full and still problems?

geek_ratherbefishin, May 16, 3:59 pm

so is it a laptop or desktop ?

Check in the mouse LED. Could be a fine bit of fluff/fibre in it.
