    Have a Panasonic laptop that's touchpad started going nuts jumping around and right clicking itself.It works fine in safe mode, and for a while I could operate the laptop just fine by leaving the touchpad disabled in the bios and using an external mouse while I tried to fix this problem, but now the external mouse is doing the same thing.Still runs in safe mode, but you cant do anything in regular mode because of all the random clicking everywhere. I had ran two different Virus scanners (Clam and Avast) hijack this(checked everything and there's nothing,but had to be in safe mode to run hijack), and used system restore to go back a month before the problem ever started.I managed the virus scans in regular mode. It would be horribly hard to set all the software needed back on to this laptop if I have to wipe it so I'm trying to avoid that. It's a laptop installed into the firetruck we run out of.

    Any ideas?

    Because you'll be asking for them, here's pics I managed to take of Hijack this in regular boot mode. It's all I could manage with the mouse probs going on and took forever just to get the program up and going.
