That guide will give you directions to adjust your mouse properties. I am pretty sure your pointer speed is set to high.

This happens to me from time to time. I'm guessing it's a laser mouse. Check the window where the laser shines from; I'll almost be there's a hair or some other small object in it. It may also be the surface you are using. Try cleaning it, and if that doesn't work and you use a mousepad, try using something else to see if it continues. I had a mousepad once that had a particular spot that caused the mouse to jump.

Fairly old post but this answer might help someone in the future with a mouse issue I just had.
I came into possession of a used Dell laser corded mouse (one with a cursor adjust speed on it and a couple of side buttons which I haven't used yet).
It was pretty jittery (cursor jumping about 10mm in random directions) making it hit or miss to click on things and the buttons were erratic (when dragging with the left mouse button it would sometimes act as if I had clicked it or moved the scroll wheel).
I tried using it on different surfaces (multi-coloured mouse mats can cause issues especially if there is red on them) and blowing on the laser and into the housing with my breath and then "air in a can" in an attempt to clean it, all to no effect.
I moved the on unit cursor adjust speed to low and the Control Panel mouse speed to high and that kept the jitters to a manageable level but there was still the button issue.
Next thing that happened with it was the cursor started moving in a steady direction on its own. I stopped that by moving it but it started again (towards 8 o'clock both times) when I stopped moving it.
As the last act of a desperate man (prior to retiring it) I tapped the hand end of it firmly on a foam mouse pad a couple of times (once on each corner) and all the issues were fixed! Might have been some dirt in there or a loose connection. Still going strong after a week or so. Nothing wrong with it now - it is a good mouse - maybe it just needed to know who was boss lol.
