I'm cleaning spyware off an XP box and I have it almost  all cleaned except for the mouse.  Right now it's a right hand with index finger extended.  But it's also been a red drum with beating drum sticks.

Any thoughts on how to eradicate this? I've run hijackthis spybot and antivirus scans but the problem persists.

Can you attach your Hijackthis log file here please so we can take a look.
Checkmark the "Attach Code Snippet" and paste your log in that window.

goto start button
pick [control panel >]
pick mouse
pick pointer tab (not options)
"normal select" should be highlighted

Ahh yes it was set in Control Panel -> Mouse -> Pointers tab to use the "Conductor" system scheme.   I set the scheme to none and it's back to normal.
