What is bad mouse?

Question

Lately my mouse, it's an optical mouse by the way, refuses to operate at certain times during the day. It's usually at night. first i thought the usb ports were bad, but it dosent work in any of the 4 ports... then i thought the mouse was bad. so i bought a new one...and another new one, same problem. then i thought maybe it was a overheating problem, so i checked and all internal fans were working i ever set an external fan at the back still messes up. I was thinking it has something to do with a bit a spyware i cant seem to get ride of the spyware is a dialer called, Vizitus. and lately random pornographic sites pop up for no reason and when i close them the other windows im using close too. so what do you think?

It's somewhat complicated, but here is how to get rid of Vizitus:

Ensure that your Anti-virus software is up to date and run a full scan Also run one of the online scans such as Housecallhttp://www.housecall.antivirus.com/).

Download the hijack packhttp://www.aqua99.dsl.pipex.com/hijackpack.zip) and SpybotSDhttp://www.aqua99.dsl.pipex.com/SpybotSD.zip)

Extract all files to a folder of your choice.

Empty all temp and temporary internet files.

Disable any System Restore or Goback type software you may have.

Update and run CWSHredder and fix anything that it finds Reboot and run it again until it gives the all clear.

Now install, update and run Spybot S&D Fix anything that it finds, reboot and run again Repeat this until it's all clear Finally run HiJack This, and the problem should be solved.
