    Mouse moving on its own


    Hello since the last windows update Tuesday I have began to notice my mouse cursor moving around the desktop on its own. I never noticed it before the last updates. Is anyone else having this problem or know of a fix thanks

    Hello. Do you use a wired or wireless mouse? Does it do anything besides moving around?

    I use a wired rat 7 mouse no other controllers plugged in. It just moves about on its own fully scanned pc no viruses or malware

    Try uninstalling the driver for the mouse. It's most likely a driver issue.

    Maybe have someone perform an exorcism?

    But seriously, check to make sure everything is clean under the mouse. I have an optical mouse & it was doing that one time, turns out there was a tiny cat hair stuck in the sensor that was apparently making it do that. I don't know how much yours is moving, but mine would kind of crawl or jump for a short distance.
