    A virus? No.
    It sounds like it could be a faulty mouse, or mouse connection (USB or Bluetooth). But I can’t diagnose it, exactly. So I would simply make an appointment with the Genius Bar and take it in — that’s what they are there for.

    I am having trouble with the keyboard and mouse,it`s mainly the keyboard. It says make sure that it`s switched on, and discoverable,and they both are. The only way i can get them connected is by turning the computer off. When i switch the computer on. They both connect straight away. I tried this on my old Mac Mini
    and i have no bother. I have even switched the Bluetooth off, and turned it back on, and still they both connect on my Mac Mini,and thats out of the Ark. Mr Anthony Cotton

      I would take the keyboard and machine to the Genius Bar and have them check it out.

    Unfortunately, i have no Genius Bar near me,and i do not drive. The nearest Apple store is in Newcastle and i live in Sunderland in the NE England. My health problem stops me from going out?
    Thanks Gary
