    When I am on my computer, windows start coming up along with games the start menu. All of a sudden I lose all control. My mouse is gone all over the place. And I get programs on top of programs. I have to keep hits the (X) to get out but there might be 25 things popped up. What is happening and how can I stop it? I have checked for virus and it say's I have none. So I have no clue. Please help. Thank you Kay Lynn

    Do some on-line AV scans at Trend and Panda.

    I have the same problem and scanned for viruses several times with Anti-Vir: Nothing.

    I temporarily solve the problem by disconecting the mouse from the computer case. i do it twice, then the mouse come back as normal. I suspect a hardware problem.

    A good way to check if it is the mouse; is to unplug it and then use the keyboard to navigate to the point where you loose control.

    For the less keyboard inclined here is a site with the shortcut keys for windows.

    And even if it isn't the problem you can still impress people by being able to get around windows without the mouse. :D

    Well, when you have this and dozen of windows opening everywhere, it's very difficult to go back to where the mouse started going crazy.
    I noticed this phenomenon is radom, using the internet, online or offline, some app or not these app doesn't seem to change anything.

    I'm still not 100% sure it's hardware because viruses can also cause random jokes.
