Mouse malfunction & strange selections

Hi all.

Yesterday I installed a IVT Bluesoleil driver for my USB bluetooth dongle (for use with my smartphone).
As I was adjusting some settings in BlueSoleil, the mouse stopped working and I was forced to reboot.
Later I uninstalled BlueSoleil as I found it badly working; I decided to use my USB cable to connect smartphone and PC.

Since then my mouse started showing malfunctions. Exactly, when I move it the pointer suddenly stops on the screen, even if I continue moving the mouse; to get the pointer moving again, I have to raise a little bit the mouse from the mousepad and going on moving it (shake it!). Another strange behaviour is that the pointer suddenly jumps form a point on the screen to another one.

As I was using the common XP mouse driver, I tried to install the Trust driver, but the problems stated above remain.

As a secondary trouble, sometimes I experience another strange thing: while I'm using Word and moving the mouse, at a sudden it selects every row I move over, as if a permanent selection was activated. If I click in a point of the document to get the selection off, nothing happens.

I attach a Hijack log.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Sorry but I have no idea whats causing that :)

That aside, have you tried doing a system restore back to before the problem began?

That should at least fix things. :)

If the mouse is a wireless mouse, my first reaction would be interference between the Bluetooth device and the mouse, if both are being used together.

1. I did a system restore but it was unuseful.

2. I did an XP reinstallation (updating: preserving installed apps) but it was unuseful as well.

My mouse isn't a wireless one.


My mouse is going on malfunctionating. The cursor continuously stops as I move the mouse (especially when I move it form right to left), jumps on the screen, fails when I click on a button or a link (works on the 2nd click): it's driving me crazy!
All that is so ridiculous... Microsoft world...

Any new suggestion?

Things run even worse.
After reinstallling XP, the OS shows strange behaviour: it doesn't use installed apps (as Adobe Flash Player on a web site) and it's impossible to install downloaded Windows updates.

I'm afraid I'll be forced to format and reinstall all again :)

AVG check: system clean
Spybot check: system clean
