    do you use a wireless mouse?

    tried replacing the batteries?

    and make sure that there are no other cables interfering with the cable to your receiver.

This cursor bounces all over the place. You can be typing and the next thing you know it's jumped over to somenthing else and has opened it or just starts typing in another XP

This is typical behaviour of a spyware infection and or a virus. Make sure your antispyware and antivirus programs are up to date. This is where I would look first for a solution before looking to hardware issues. That said a mouse is very inexpensive. Hope this helps you.

How to fix the size of cursor?

Go to start menu,
then control panel,
click on the mouse icon,
click on the pointers tab,
on the first option listed as Sheme you will find a variety of choices that will change the size and (to a limited degree) the color of the cursor.
Such as Windows Black (Large Sheme) or (Extra Large Sheme).
Hope this helps.
