My mouse pointer moves around the desktop.

May 7, 2011 at 19:11:51
Specs: Windows XP
A warning pops that "Antivirus protection is disabled. Virus scanner initialization failed. Most of the ESET NOD32 Antivirus modules will not function properly". after that I shut down my computer and the virus protection works again. But when I start my computer, the cursor moves around the desktop like crazy. I can't control it. I scan the computer for viruses and the pointer moves well and I can control it. What is this kind of problem? Is there a virus?

iNnoCenTii, FYI be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Malware Bytes seems to be the preferred remover, but I've run into a few it couldn't handle. Superantispyware (seems able to handle all comers. Info only. I’m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:

among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update any cleaner prior to running.
Disable 'restore' after cleaning and run it again (to remove any nasties living there, restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back should you later ‘restore’. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.
