Mouse is acting by itself

mewtd asked
Last Modified: 2020-03-06

The mouse is giving me terrible trouble on a HP elite book.

It is freezing things every few minutes. Have to do ctrl + alt + del and then back in to be able to re-engage with the mouse.

If I don't do anything on the computer, just with the desktop open, the mouse is right clicking by itself. It stays like the attached.

I have replaced mouse.

I have disabled track pad.

I have uninstalled all registered mice in device manager.

Please help!
