    I am under the belief that I certainly have some sort of remote software virus on my Mac, as the mouse keeps moving on its own, I swear I saw something type itself the other day, I swear to god!
    I have used two different Virus sweepers and found nothing, Virus Barrier 5 & MacScan, I think I have Keylogging software & certainly remote control software, I suspect an Ex Housemate of doing it, Yet when I perform scans with both mentioned above they find nothing, I have tried looking in Terminal for active programs, but in all honesty have no idea what I'm looking for, Help please, ASAP

    Oh, I'm running OS X 10.5.8

    do you have a remote user software running.. its a little unclear?
    i have used them on my iPhone to play tricks on my wife..
    if thats the case then check them, if you have computer literate buddies.. they could certainly be playing a trick on ya..
    virus? i don't think so.. there rant any that would want to trick you, just steal your CC #s

    I switched off sharing, live with my computer illeterate parents and younger brother now.
    I don't own anything like an iphone or anything, I had sharing on to share songs with my little Bro's X-box, but that's it
