It can't be a problem with the keyboard because my laptop keyboard doesn't work and I only use a USB keyboard. Also the mouse was moving around too and trying to do things and it also can't be my keyboard because as I already explained as soon as I disconnected the laptop from the internet the mouse and keyboard stopped doing things.

This happens to me now & then, I save my work, close all programs, and restart. Everything is fine upon reboot. Scans came up clean. I figure two programs got into a control argument and I lost.

change your passwords

If you ever suspect you are "remote controlled"
Change ALL your passwords ON A DIFFERENT computer.

Yet again the problem disappears after I disconnect from the internet? I only got the idea that someone was controlling my computer because I was just doing everyday stuff before that and it was still typing random stuff in. I didn't think it was anything serious till I got on my banking, then my mouse started moving instead of just keyboard stuff. The mouse and keyboard immediately started working normally after disconnecting from the internet.

?Whatever is being done on the internet is clashing with whatever is being done that doesn't need the internet? Or, your computer may be a victim of malware, time to run scans by your antivirus and antiSpy&Mal-ware programs. There are also a couple of very good online scans you can run. Someone earlier posted this advice, please take care of your computer

I don't know if I'm pointing out the obvious It sounds to me like some kind of RAT.
May I ask when this started happening and what kind of activities you use the computer for(And if you, for example, pirate programs which could potentially install malware).
There are the obvious things like checking for programs you don't remember installing, etc. But if MWB didn't find it, it is either a new piece of malware or it hides itself very well. Try scanning with malwarebytes chameleon, it may be evading anti-malware programs and one of the chameleon solutions could find something.

Of course it could be that remote assistance is turned on and someone knows your password, in this case they either phished it off of you or it is possible that they have a RAT installed with a keylogger or just a keylogger on your computer, I think it is quite likely.

In the event that you do find the executable responsible, please submit it for analysis(for example Kaspersky Virus Desk) to one of the companies that deal with malware.

Although, when it comes to malware I tend to think it is worse than it actually is, better to be over analysing than risk possible infection.

There are also
- Adwcleaner
- TDSSkiller
- Rkill

to scan with, but I don't know if you can crash your OS trying to clean with these, so if you find anything with these first ask advice here on forums.

Thanks for all the tips but I'm probably going to end up buying a new laptop anyways. Not because of this issue just because the laptop is 5-6 years old and I'm getting tired of it not working and it being so worn out everywhere.
