...are all the problems I have. I had these same problems before the summer holidays, and now, not more than four months after returning, I have the same problems. I reformatted when I returned, as that was my only option at the time, not being able to connect to the internet or even access the computer. My mouse keeps randomly right-clicking all over the place, without me ever touching it, and also flying out to the corner of the screen at the same time. Sometimes, if I use the mouse too much (after about 10-20 minutes of browsing), it will just lock up, forcing me to restart. My internet connection when used with internet explorer also has delays when loading pages, longer than usual, and sometimes I have to refresh several times to get the page to work. Also, my computer will randomly reboot when I try to play a game, as it did before. A problem I had before, but not now, was after rebooting it would give me a blue screen with a whole bunch of writing on it talking about some sort of physical memory dump. These are the events that slowly led to this. http://www.microsoft.com/security/incident/blast.mspx This was before the holidays. I reformatted, as you know, and now I am only experiencing the mouse, slow internet problems, and random rebooting. I pray it will somehow not degenerate into the above link. I have an Anti-Virus program and Adware installed. Adware detected a few meager things, but it did not fix the problem. My antivirus(Panda Antivirus) detected one virus, fixing nothing... I am convinced this is a virus. But I need to know what type, and how I can fix it. Does anybody know a solution to this problem? I do not want to reformat again, it is a lot of time and energy wasted... I have searched for several hours now on google, but I don't see anybody with the problems I have, except for the random rebooting part. Also, my system specs, if they matter. AMD Athlon XP 1600+ 1.40 Ghz 1.25 GB of RAM Geforce 5200FX I just recently purchased the RAM, graphics card and a new harddrive. I am ruling out all hardware problems, as this is four months after my previous experience. Also, when I returned from my holidays, I reformatted several times, each time I connected to the internet and downloaded google toolbar, and other progs, without anti-virus, got me the same problem. After the 3rd reformatting, I installed an Antivirus, Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition, and it didn't catch the bug again. These problems are just occuring today. I found that a family member opened an e-mail attachment (today), a text file with no writing in it. I believe this could be the problem. After having these problems I uninstalled my Norton Corporate Antivirus and installed Panda Antivirus and also Adware. But I have becoming more and more convinced that these programs only prevent, and do not cure. I apologize if my writing is disjointed, even unreadable. My eyes are dying and I have been working at this fricking problem for 5-7 hours. I could murder the people who make these viruses, which I suspect are the anti-virus companies themselves, otherwise they would be out of business if their products really did work.
