Have you tried starting in Safe Mode, if yes was the mouse cursor behaviour the same.

 

A  few things of note in the Speccy report, some I have addressed below and a couple I will mention here, BitTorrent.exe, are you aware of the risk of malware attack when downloading torrents, if our work here does not resolve the issue I will provide the GTG malware redirect information for you, there are two lots of drivers for keyboards and mice shown in Speccy, we will need to check that the correct ones are installed.

 

1: Uninstall advanced system care, the program is at best a gimmick and at worst a disaster waiting to happen for your computer, this type of software promises to speed up your computer but it has the potential to make it inoperable, read the blog by respected author Miekiemoe and you will understand why such programs are not recommended on these forums.

 

2: Uninstall AVG as it is a hog on system resources and causes conflicts with hardware and software drivers, it will presently be conflicting with ASC 7s attempt at offering AV protection, AVG removal tool and Microsoft Security Essentials (free).

 

3: While we are troubleshooting please change your power management settings, see below;

 

Power Profile
Active power scheme: 
High performance - Change this to balanced.
Hibernation: 
Enabled - Disable this.
Turn Off Monitor after: (On AC Power): 
20 min - Change this to Never.
Turn Off Monitor after: (On Battery Power): 
20 min - Change this to Never.
Turn Off Hard Disk after: (On AC Power): 
20 min - Change this to Never.
Turn Off Hard Disk after: (On Battery Power): 
20 min - Change this to Never.
Suspend after: (On AC Power): 
Never
Suspend after: (On Battery Power): 
60 min - Change this to Never.
 
 
Screen saver: 
Enabled
 - Disable this.

Can you answer this please.

We will get to this in due course.

 

can u have drivers that do more harm than good.

 

Yes, not all driver updates make an improvement and they can often do more harm than good, see Do I Really Need to Update My Drivers?

sorry i did not address your first question i just started in safe mode.

some times it takes a few solid hours to really see it.

when it dos act up the mouse usually travels slowly up and to the left in a kind of vibrating motion.

i have a microsoft wireless mouse in one of my usb ports when its going if-y(vibrating) it stops when i move the mouse.

also when i am writing the cursor jumps backwards to the middle of a phrase messing up my sentence.

this has happened in safe mode. but not the mouse yet.

Do you have any other wireless devices such ie cordless telephone or USB dongle etc that could be interfering with the signal or speakers that could be vibrating the surface.

 

Do you have or can you borrow a wired USB type mouse and keyboard that you can try for testing purposes.

Are the two external HDDs on the same surface as the notebook and mouse, one of the drives spinning up will create enough vibration to affect the mouse, the external HDDs could also be affecting the USB port signal, does the issue happen when the two external HDDs are disconnected from the notebook.

 

Re downloading torrents, are you aware of the risks of malware attack when doing so, before we continue here can I ask  you to refer to the GTG malware redirection text below;

the mouse seams to have calmed down a bit.

not as much vibrating but still moves by its self from time to time.

mostly acts up while typing

seams like it click's by its self to.

i'm using a different internet connection,switched locale and isp.

i'm running security essentials,malwarbyts,ccleaner and updating often.
