I don't know what's causing this and could use some help.
I've got an old emachines t6212 with a newer Seagate hard drive. It's about 3 months old.
I use XP Pro w/SP2.
I was just checking my accounts online when the Logitech optical mouse highlighted sections of the screen by itself.
Then the mouse slowed down and then virtually nothing worked.
The mouse is about 2 weeks old. No model name on it but is cordless and has no recharge feature for the battery.
The most recent software addition is BoClean malware protection from Comodo.
Occasionally, over the past 5 or 6 weeks, iTunes would just start up when there was no ipod attached and no music being listened to.
Now tonight when I saw what was happening I used the on/off button to do an ermergency shutdown.
Let the pc sit for a few minutes and started it up again.
I got a blue screen showing CHKDSC running. It was checking whatever and deleted some files. I don't know which ones.
When the pc finally started again, many of my programs needed to be set up again as if I had just downloaded them.
Belarc shows SMART saying the hard drive is healthy.
So does HD Tune.
As I'm typing this I'm starting to have the same prioblem again.
I'm wondering if it could be the mouse.
The little green indicator light underneath it keeps going off. But if that's it why would it be hightlighting as if I were going to paste and copy.
Hope somebody can help with this.
If I lose all of my wife's songs it's going to hurt me far worse than her.
