Default downloading a free software program messed up my computer

I downloaded "touchpad blocker" for free 6 months ago. Right after when I move the mouse the right-click box appears on the screen (the right click box- undo, redo, cut, copy, paste, ect.) almost every time I move the mouse so like 100 times a day.

I just moved the mouse to click the continue box here on Yahoo Answer and it popped up.

1) I do not have a saved restore point so I can't restore the computer back before I downloaded this free program.

2) I have uninstalled the program but the problem remains

3) I installed Male-ware bits (the free version) it found nothing

4) I ran a hard drive test (rebooted and pressed F12 then run tests)

5) I have the paid version of AVG and they found no problems

Is there anything else I can do before I do a factory restore?

P.S. 2013 Dell Inspiron N5050, Windows 7, 64 bit, 12 gigs (I installed a 8 gig stick and a 4 gig stick) of RAM, 500 gig hard drive
