Never mind:

I advise you to uninstall your mouse. That's because this file:
C:\Program Files\MouseWare\system\A0022285.exe
is infected.

Then make a new restore point, as the rest is found in an old system restore point.

Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: (You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected)

1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

I bet a new scan will come clean!

Go to ‘config’
Go to ‘misc tools’
Press the button ‘open uninstall manager’
See if the mouse is mentioned anywhere. If it is:
Press ‘delete this item’. Then exit HijackThis.

If it's not:
Go to start - control panel - mouse.
See if you can uninstall it from there.

If not:
check if the mouse is anywhere in here:
start - all programs

Please let me know how things are.
