Cursor moves on its own.

Hey all. Lately I have had some weird issues with my computer. The one that scares me though is that sometimes my mouse cursor moves without me moving the mouse. The thing is, is that it only does it only does it some times and when it moves is doesn't move much, but enough to go up, down, left, and right. The second I physically move my mouse, it stops moving on its own and I don't notice it for the rest of the day. My current mouse is a Razer Deathadder. Could this be a virus, is someone hacking me? I have run avira, malwarebytes, and ccleaner and have found nothing out of the ordinary.

I have found a lot of articles and videos that show razor mouse cursors moving on their own.

I have decided that a spec of dust, eyelash or a dog hair in the lens area can cause the mouse cursor to move a little bit on its own. And a corded mouse can be pulled by a dangling wire. I would not be concerned unless it changes directions or moves in circles, or worse yet, clicks on something.

At any rate, doing regular anti-malware scans, with current scanners, would be a wise move.
