Good malware/adware/virus freeware? And Q about mouse issue

I have some sort of virus thats screwing with my mouse. Tried updating the logitech software and tried another mouse with no luck. So i'm quite sure it's a virus. Many of the mouse buttons become intermittent sometimes for 10 or 20 seconds at a time, then they will work for as long as minutes or even an hour before it happens again. Sometimes especially after startup it may only work for seconds before it starts doing it again. Researching it i also got the impression it's a virus or some sort of _____ware. So if anyone has any ideas of a current bug that causes this or any thorough scanners that are free and work good i'd like to hear. My trial is up on malwarebytes and i used the microsoft removal tool but thats it so far and it didn't work.

Well; first thing if you suspect a virus; i would download, run and install a virus scanner called avg. I use that one as its been one of the better rated ones out there that Ive seen. But I would also re-download the free version of malwarebytes, and superantispyware; install and run them and let them scan your system. I will post the links to all 3 of these below:

avg: http://www.avg.com/us-en/download-fi...mecmp?dwn=av14

malwarebytes: https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/

superantispyware: SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloading File

Hi,
For the expired mbam trial use this after uninstalling,

You can still pick up lifetime license versions of mbam at Newegg.com or Amazon.com for around 50.00 u.s. well worth it instead of the yearly subscriptions they are now selling,
Get it while they last,

Mouse issue :/
You don't show any system spec's so please fill them out some graphic card drivers will effect your mouse operation locally inside programs and in your browser NVidia's new driver effected mine so I use the windows update drivers instead possibly use that driver instead of from the manufacture,
