I'm not sure what to think about this HP touchsmart with mouse pad or usb mouse The symptom is as follows: Mouse pad or external mouse is jumpy and mouse moves around on it's own. Windows, apps and/or browser opens on it's own and eventually you can't really move your mouse because it jumps to the desktop as soon as you try to hit the X to close a windows or application. The background screen has occasional sparkles or resembles a sprinkle as if a light rain is hitting a smooth lake or something. All wifi and internet are disconnected and wiped the hard drive and partitions using a USB live linux CD to create new partition table and format. I installed Fresh windows and the mouse / sprinkle was starting to emerge again. Even after updating the flash with flash utility the sparkle effect was still present occasionally but the mouse movement appears to be gone from what I can tell. I do suspect the virus is still present in the bios and perhaps back on the hard drive somewhere. Please advise
