Mouse Moves Away

Update: Oct 19th, 2009

Problem: Users icons seem to jump away from the mouse as the user tries to click on them.

What to do?

This is the magister virus. The only good solution is to try to remove the virus entirely by doing a complete virus scan with a known good virus checker and undo the registry changes and the win.ini changes detailed in the symantec magistr removal instructions. Unfortunately, this is sometimes not enough. If the virus checker has said your system is clean and it continues to exhibit strange behavior, the system must be formatted and you must start over from scratch.
