Mouse jumping around and Clicking on a Mac

April 24, 2009 at 07:17:00
Specs: OS X 10.5.6
My mouse jumps around and moves as if it is controlling itself, it clicks and right clicks as if someone else is moving my mouse. It jumps around and highlights things and won't let got of them even if I try clicking. Sometimes I can't even use my mouse, and have to resort to keyboard functions to select things.

I have a wireless mouse and even when I unplug it and use just the trackpad, it still happens. I also have tried turning the wireless internet off, but this still happens. This morning when I checked my computer, I had 6 untitled folders in my desktop, Finder was open, and had pictures up in Preview as well. Please help! This is a very annoying problem!

If folders you are not creating are are showing up it sounds like some one may be remoting on to your Mac. Other wise I would say to try and reinstall the driver.

How do I fix this? Will reinstalling the driver erase everything that I have saved?
