It isn't a mouse on the laptop essexboy but a track pad (or mouse pad as the OP describes it).

Never upgraded (?) to a laptop

Could you check the driver

Go start > Run type in :

devmgmt.msc

Device manager will open
Are there any yellow triangles ?

I must admit I am at a loss with this, as I say I have never had a laptop so I am not sure what can be done to rectify this

 Are you still getting redirects in fifox ?

No recent pop ups in firefox, in addition to cursor going where it wants sometime, email also gets sent without clicking send, very, very annoying, this also did not happen before the virus, just now, what i disappeard and as i am typing, cursor repositions itself somewhere inbetween previously typed words,  i think there is still a virus here

This will take a while to run... For the zip analysis file could you upload to a file sharing siter for me to collect

Download AVPTool from Here to your desktop 
   
Run the programme you have just downloaded to your desktop (it will be randomly named ) 
 
First we will run a virus scan  
 
Click the cog in the upper right 

 
 
Select down to and including your main drive, once done select the Automatic scan tab and press Start Scan 


 
Allow AVP to delete all infections found
Once it has finished select report tab (last tab)
Select Detected threats report from the left and press Save button
Save it to your desktop and attach to your next post
 
 
Now the Analysis
 
Rerun AVP and select the Manual Disinfection tab and press Start Gathering System Information 
 

 
On completion click the link to locate the zip file to upload and attach to your next post

thanks for budding in, but my mouse is not a usb external mouse, it is the touchpad that is installed in the laptop centered below the keypad,
