hi guys, my mouse is acting kinda weird, it happens when my anti-virus firewall pops up to tell me if something is attempting to access the internet like this http://i20.photobuck...o5/firewall.jpg

then when i choose a action, the mouse freezes up for a few seconds, and it is really annoying. any help will be appreciated.

Hi yanksin05 and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Excal and I will be helping you.

I think you may still have some malware issues, if you haven't already downloaded HJT, can you please do so know and post a fresh HiJackThis log.

Download HijackThis and post a logfile:
  • Download HijackThis.
  • Create a folder named "HijackThis". To create a folder:
    • Go to My Documents.
    • Right-click and select New> Folder.
    • Name the folder as "HijackThis".
  • Extract the contents of hijackthis.zip into the folder you've just created.
  • Open HijackThis.exe
  • Click on "Do a system scan and save a logfile".
  • After the scan is complete a Notepad window will popup.
  • In the Notepad window, go to Edit> Select all and then Edit> Copy.
  • Paste the log into your next reply.
Do NOT fix anything until we check your log. You can cause serious damage to your operating system if you fix a valid entry.



Thanks,

:tazz:
