I have one problem on my computer, my mouse malfunctions too often! At first I thought it was just the mouse, but then my friend lent me another mouse of his own, and even that malfunctioned! Very frequently, the mouse would stop responding, and I had to control it from the keyboard. The mouse he lent me connected to the green port in the back... the one before that used the USB port. This one that he lent me uses a laser, and the light works just fine. If i move my finger over it, the light becomes stronger as it should, but the mouse on the screen doesn't respond. I think all of this may have
started when I plugged in one o my friend's flash drives. That one flash dirve had about 47 virusses and it acts funny on my computer. He got one of his friends to scan it and delete all those viruses, but still that flash drive acts strange. Well, it only acts strange when it's on my computer. What happens is, I open the E:\folder, and i would see the folders, then after about a minute it would say something about insert drive E:\. Do you think this is a hardware problem or could it be a virus?

You may still have viruses that have not been found, after that bad an infection I would reformat the drive and reinstall. Save your data first.
Also the ram is very low for XP 512mb or more is recommended.

Haha.. I've had more viruses than that. When I first got internet I had about 120+ viruses. And I mentioned that RAM thing to someone else, too. So which drive are you referring to? The C:\ or the E:\?

Run a full virus scan on your system. You should also run a spyware scan & if necessary, a Trojan Remover. Also, you should be regularly using a program such as CCleaner (Slim) or Glary Utilities to clean up all the accumulated internet garbage, temp files & system registry.

But as anmor suggested, upgrade the memory to at least 512MB...ASAP!
