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.

Checkmark the "Attach Code Snippet" and paste your log in that window.

goto start button
pick [control panel >]

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.
