I will definitely do those...I wasnt sure if cleaning the lens would hurt it.

I don't think I have any drivers for it. I've always just plugged it in and it's worked fine. It's nothing special...just an older optical logitech mouse.

I play an FPS game with it and don't have any trouble aside from this occasional jumping thing.

Would I be wrong to assume that I'd be fine with any decent optical mouse for playing my game if I've been fine on this basic one? (this is assuming I can't fix this one with your other recommendations)

Yes, if the problem is with the mouse or the driver. If it is a problem with something else, you will have the same problem.

Download the SetPoint drivers and give them a try.
