    Do you all think this is my mouse? If so I can go to the store in the morning and purchase a new mouse. I have been stressing because I thought I downloaded something terrible and destroyed my computer. If this is the mouse then I am so happy and relieved. I do have one other question - is the www.pc-driver-update.com something that I should download for my computer or is this extra junk? Also I am sorry if I am not responding to this program properly - I cannot find the button to allow me to respond to the help suggestions that I have received.

I have a Optical and that what you describe would happen from time to time.
1. It can be the batteries. As the batteries get low it does go where it want to.
2. Some mouse pad can be a problem because they do not reflect the light so it can detect the move.
3. Some times the setting gets mess up and it need to be reset.
I do hope this help.

What kind of mouse are you using?

Optical Mouse or the one with the Ball under it?

if the one with Ball under it...clean the sensor by removing the cap and ball...and clean the roller inside.

if your mouse is Optical, check the setting of your mouse (contol panel>>>mouse)

install the driver too to have more options

goodluck
