Question about Labtec (9115290914) Mouse
The mouse pointer moves erratically, opening and closing windows, and just having a mind of its own. This happens especially when I connect to the internet (I use both Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 3.0.1 browsers). I have scanned all files with antivirus programs (mcaffee) but the problem remains. The problem seems to disappear sometimes, but reappears when I start another browsing session. Any suggestions to fix this problem?

Could be radio interference from somewhere. I tracked my similar mouse problem down to emissions from the ethernet adapter that connects over the house mains wiring. Try the using the mouse close to the receiver, if it works ok interference is likely.

I have had the same problem. This may sound strange, but try the following:
Switch off the notebook.
Remove the battery and keep the on off switch pressed for >5 seconds.
Replace the battery and start the computer again.
The problem should then be resolved.

After experiencing the same issue for a few frustrating hours, I read here the theory about the required distance accuracy between the sensor and the surface.I used to be able to use mice (any brand) on a simple piece of paper or directly on (wooden) surfaces. Not with this "laser mouse..."
I was about to try the "tape-with-a-hole" solution, but before trying that I simply threw a heavy, thick magazine with a glossy back-cover on the table and tried again. Worked like a charm. The heaviness of the magazine (I think) lent the "flatness" which I believe is the real required solution. I'm not sure if the glossiness played a role here...

Several things can cause this. If you're using the mouse on a reflective or glass surface, the laser light underneath will dance all over the place, and it doesn't take much to make the mouse pointer go crazy. Put a standard mouse pad under it. If it's still doing the same thing, then replace the batteries. If both of those don't work, replace the mouse.
Believe it or not, if another mouse does the same thing, you probably have a malware or virus infection. There are some 30 or more common viruses that are really just nuisance type programs that intentionally make your computer (especially the mouse) do some very strange things. I guess that's some geek's idea of humor.
