    My droid screen is activating applications on its own. Pop up screen at the bottom pops up and down repeatedly. I pull the green bar over to open the application screen and several icons start blinking on their own.

    Did the screen get wet, was the phone dropped recently?

    Is the phone plugged into a "cheapo" charger? Non-stock chargers have been known to make the phone's screen act all possessed with a mind of its own. Unplugging from such a charger makes such activity stop.

    If it continues I'd call up Verizon.

    I'm running CyanogenMod 5.0.7.1 and use the charger that came with the phone. I treat the phone like a baby.

    I have on rare occasion seen the phone just go ape sh*t. Literally as if someone else were using it and randomly clicking icons and firing off menus. The only solution is a battery pull.

    90% sure it isn't a virus.

    If it is happening constantly I'd back up your current rom and settings and try restoring one of your backups. You also could try installing a different rom. Meanwhile, having had posted the rom you are on will help as we'll see if others experience the same thing.

    Now knowing you're rooted I take back the advice of calling Verizon for the next step:)
