I left my Mac connected to the internet and I think it downloaded a virus.


simtoms:  The cursor is moving by it's self, also cliking...


I used the Mac OS X install DVD, holding the "C" key as the computer booted. Once the computer booted from the DVD the problem ceased.

So it is a software problem.


I read the forums and I did not fin an answer that confirm solving the problem.


I resetted the PRAM holding the option, comand, P and R keys till I heard four times the boot chaim noice. I ran the Disk Utility sofrare for permits and for reparing the disk. I down loaded the trial version of MacScan and ran it. All these eforts did not fix the problem.


I have a MacBook Pro, running snow leopard 10,6,8


I am cover by apple care, my info:
