At times my mouse functions correctly and then at other times it seems to randomly jump around while in the most important of times. Examples would be playing minesweeper and I'm going to click the last box, and it jumps to a bomb and I click that instead. Or I'm shopping for something online and it adds something I don't want into my basket.
Either way, it isn't a hardware malfunction. The mouse works fine on my laptop, and I have tried other mice, which have the same problem. I have disabled all programs which aren't windows related, and restarted my computer, and the problem still exists. I have uninstalled the driver, and reinstalled it. I have cleaned the laser lens, and the mouse pad I'm using is not the issue either. The only viable option I have left is to question which "program" is causing my mouse to act odd, and I need your help.
I'm running Windows 7 Professional, and am using a Steel Series Ikari Gaming mouse. My mouse pad is a QCK Steel Series cloth mat. My motherboard came with Express Gate, which is a simple OS which allows you to use the web, skype, and other small programs. When in Express Gate the mouse functions fine, but once windows is booted up, the mouse randomly jumps around.
I have MBAM full version, and no malware.
Avast free also runs.
This is a new computer which I built.

Randomly jumpy mouse, and seems to "lag"/"drag" in the top right corner of the screen.
No random jumps in the Expressgate "os" and no "lag/drag" in the top right corner of the screen.
Once Windows boots up, jumpyness exists. Seems to happen around buttons, or clickable events.
Have done selective startup with all services disabled besides microsoft.
Have uninstalled + reinstalled drivers.
Mouse is plug n play with windows 7.
Tried multiple mice with same effect, while these mice work fine on my laptop running windows vista.
Tried multiple usb ports.
Mouse works fine on laptop running vista.
