At random times my mouse moves by itself clicks on around the screen I formatted and reinstalled win 7 but the problem has surfaced again. Haven't downloaded anything suspicious have no idea why this is happening. Did a full scan with Malwarebytes and nothing came up
- Rule out someone remote controlling or a wireless mouse
any help would be greatly appreciated

Try a wired mouse. Could be a neighbor with the same wireless mouse.

back in school the computer technicians used to take control over are mouse when we were playing games, but they didn’t have full control so it was a battle to stop them getting to the close button. Anyway good luck.

Used to have a Mouse that did that, I searched for ages and never found out what caused this, the only fix I found was buy another mouse.

Its a wired mouse and could it be possible that there is some sort of script programmed within the mouse? its a random generic brand i got for 5 bucks in china rofl. Was your mouse the same kind or was it a name brand?

windows 7 has it built in to let people remotly dial in and control your pc. you have to turn it off to be 100 pervent from hacker dialing in using standard ms home network. want turn off file and print sharing.

If you do swap the mouse and it still happens then it might be the usb port that you are using.

What is your script that you need help with? Your code should be implementing a MOUSE_MOVE event listener where its event handler function dictates the rotationX and rotationY properties of a movieclip relative to the mouseX and mouseY properties.

I think i've found the source of the problem. The mouse started to move and then I unplugged my wireless reciever for my keyboard and it stopped ( happened about 5 times) but i've got a feeling they can see my desktop. Is there a way to monitor all outgoing internet traffic from my computer?

Your reciever is probably picking up someone elses mouse as stated above.
One of your neighbors has a similar mouse or keyboard combo.
