    My computer will be working fine and all of a sudden the cursor starts
    running across the screen, random programs are opening and closing. This
    does not stop until I press ctr-alt-del for the task manager to come up (this
    seems to stop it).
    I have run Lavasoft, Microtrend and Nortons to check for Adware/Spyware or
    Viruses etc. – these have found items and quarantined them. It seems to be
    doing it a lot less than it was. Any help you can provide will be
    appreciated. Thank you.

    It seems that someone is taking over your PC. It's a scary thought.
    Install a firewall immediately - at the very least ZoneAlarm. The basic
    version is free.
