|Last night my cursor suddenly stopped responding to my mouse movements and began wandering all over the page. I re-booted. It was OK for a little while and then the same thing happened again. It didn't seem to be looking for anything or acting with any purpose - just wandering around the page like a drunk.|
There were no suspicious processes running, and my spyware (MS beta 1, Add-Aware, Spybot S&D), my firewall (ZA Pro) and anti virus (AVG) are all bang up to date, and none of them reported any problems or intruders. Additionally, I don't visit dodgy websites :)
I did what I always do in such circumstances and restored an earlier, clean, drive image from my back-up drive which seems to have solved the problem.
However, I'm curious to know what it might have been, and whether any other posters have experienced anything similar?
