Why do I get mouse right click pop-ups

December 8, 2010 at 19:39:24
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, 3 GHz / 1919 MB
Randomly, without a hand on the mouse, I get a pop-up that usually pops up when the right button of the mouse is clicked.
What I have done.
Took the batteries pout of my wireless mouse.
Still happens.
Replaced the wireless mouse with a wired mouse.
Still happens.
Recovered a two week old image of my HD, before the problem.
Still happens
Ran a full scan with MSE.
No viruses and still happens.
Scanned with MalwareBytes.
No problems and still happens.
I am at a loss. Help?

If I'm on the Desktop the pop up is a menu that starts out with View, Sort, Refresh and the bottom word is Personalize. On this page its Undo,Cut, Copy, Paste and the bottom word is Customize. The typical pop up that occurs when the right mouse button is clicked. Except I am not even touching the mouse.

you could have some kind of malware causing that, why not try a scan with Trojan remover and hitman pro. Those 2 usually find some nasties. See if that helps.

Did a clean install of the OS and buildup from there. Problem solved.
