I tried downloading the Malware, it ran the diagnostic, then cleared up a few items it found and then asked for a paymen, leaving many more that found.
So far the the mouse has frozen about a dozen times since you asked me to down load the Malware. Am I doing something wrong to not get it for free as you stated?

OK, I ran it again and it showed no malicious events at all, zero.
I guess this won't work to stop the problem with the mouse not opening icons from the desktop.
I will now try the disable in msconfig to see it it works.
OK I've run for a little over 24 hours after unchecking all but my Kaspersky Security.
I'll now turn that off as a final change in the msconfig but I doubt it's going to work.
Let me know if you have any other possibilties.
I could try a USB mouse and see if that cures it?
This happening on my Laptop, so it's the pad that I'm using, no mouse.
Sorry about misleading you as I am writing this on my desktop computer that doesn't have the problem.
Used a USB mouse when it froze today, and that didn't cure it.
So back to square 1....this is frustrating and I'm getting the impression that you have no experience with this problem. If you don't, that's o.k. but maybe someone else does, so please open this up to others.
Incidentally, the mouse (and pad) pointer moves normally, which allows me to move off the desktop in open some programs in the left dialog box and startup at the bottom of the screen.
