Mouse & Keyboard Freeze/Monitor Distorted--Virus?

A week ago Thursday, my monitor went crazy and it's all distorted like an old tv with bad reception. I've concluded from the monitor's self-test that it isn't the monitor. It's a Dell 17" LCD and it's worked fine since Christmas. The next day, the mouse and keyboard started freezing. I actually thought it was the computer freezing up at first, until I saw a program continue to run, but had lost all function with the mouse and keyboard. I downloaded new mouse and keyboard drivers, uninstalled previous drivers and reinstalled the new drivers, which seemed to help for a little while, on and off. Although I had to reinstall several times. I thought I had finally got it almost there, when my mouse worked nearly all day yesterday, but it stopped again. I've tried to reinstall with newly downloaded drivers to no avail. I'm losing my mind. Working on this all day, nearly every day for the past 10 days, to the point I'm cracking up now. This is the third time I've attempted to post this message. I lost the last two attempts. I will copy it before hitting submit this time, though. Don't want to try again. Just want to mention that my system restore doesn't work. I never could get it to save a point, although I wouldn't know where to begin now. It was also suggested that I reinstall the OS, but I've moved twice since I got Windows ME and I haven't been able to find the original disks (plus alot of other things), but I really don't think that would solve the problem anyway.

I have run the following scans:

Housecall, Trend Micro -- NONE
McAfee -- NONE (current, took several days to complete an update)
TrojanHunter -- I think it said it fixed 2 files
Panda Active Scan -- found 3 files
Spybot -- NONE
AdAware -- found cookies
MWAV Antivirus -- Have log file

and I kept getting a low disk space message while running the scans even though I had removed quite a few old programs and deleted cookies and files, and emptied recycle bin. I ran CleanUp and it generated nearly an extra gig of drive space. The only thing that seems a bit odd is a McAfee temp folder. I just don't recall ever noticing one before. Could just be my imagination. Just thought I'd mention it.

I can't run the scans again until I can get the mouse working. Most of them require you to "click," which you can't do without a mouse. Talk about frustrating.

I really don't know where else to turn. I would so very, very, very much appreciate any assistance. Thank you so very, very, very much in advance.

Here's my HJT log:
