Hello Experts,

I have a problem that is bugging me alot. We have two PCs in a network that seems to have been a target of some sort of macro virus. All of a sudden the mouse will start moving after a preset macro. I have checked the system process and services and I dont see anything out of the ordinary. I removed the PC's from the network and they still did the same thing. It seems like the mouse and keyboard has a prerecorded macro to open certain server softwares and brute force passwords. The macro has very high accuracy and it is just like someone has taken over the screen since I resized the windows and they are still able to close the windows on the red X button..... even though I unplugged the network cable!!

I have looked everywhere for a potential virus/trojan but I cant find anything wrong. It even did it in SAFE MODE after I restarted it and took it off the network.

If anyone have had a similar problem or know of a solution please let me know.

Thank you,
