  1. My mouse has been randomly jumping ever now and again; it moves about and inch or two in random direction and often leads to me clicking on things i didn't want to. Kaspersky can't find any viruses but could someone read my hijack this log for me please


    Can i also add that my internet gets allot of failure to load errors and i need to refresh (however this may be a different problem with firefox, but it has never happened before)

    It's regrettable that this thread was not acknowleged in a timely manner. Your HJT log appears normal.

    If you suspect malware, following the 8-step malware removal guide should be considered.

    and what type of mouse do you have?

    sometimes it just means you need you to clean the optics (or mechanics if you're still using a roller-ball based mouse!)

    Thanks for the replies, i don't quite know what optics are but i've cleaned the lenzy bit on the mouse and that seems to have done the trick, also i think i need to clea the mose pad as its covered with hairs.

    Thanks for reading my hijack this log

    (sorry for all my technical language i use lol)

    Try a single dark color pad or surface (not multi-colored). I know this worked for me.
