I usually use a wireless mouse; but I had to change it to a wired one for a minute and the mystery started:
When I browse the web; pages start to open by themselves! You might think it happens on creepy sites or questionable ones; I do not go there and my settings will take care of that.
I start typing on MS Words; use the mouse instead of hot keys, Click ….and the format changes on its own!!
Not that I am technically challenged when it comes to computers and software, I built mine from scratch, hardware, software and all. I am so familiar with tuning up PC’s and fixed so many errors and blue screens and freezes and tweak them sometimes till it hurts.
It must be a rare glitch in the system, or a Ghost in the Machine if you like; that commands my PC mouse to go Paranormal on me. I’ve seen it with wireless mice when you leave your phone next to them for an example and the interference kicks in, but this crazy one is Wired!
I’ve combed the entire system, checked the registry and the error log, checked the mouse and drive and still could not find the cause. And yes; I checked for malware, spyware and viruses and found none.
In a way; it is interesting to see where I am going to browse next, it is like random hits and random sites. On the other hand it annoys the heck of me if I am trying to edit an image…click…Boom …another one comes up!
I am using my wireless mouse for now; but when I feel adventurous…I bring out my Haunted Mouse!
