Default Cursor Keeps Getting Stuck

It happens quite often on a few computers of mine...

firstly i use a different mouse for each com and there also is no mousepad (though i dont tink thats the problem)

often my cursor will get stuck onto an "invisible" horizontal line and will only move in a right or left straight direction, never anywhere else, not up nor down... can anyone help? and suggest what may be the problem?

the problem does not go away until i reboot my com, but after a while the problem comes back...

also, my mouse keeps 'lagging', sometimes though i may drag my mouse at a long distance, still it would not move, thats also another problem

try cleaning the tracks on the mouse .Remove the ball and clean the lint from the tracks . Go to device manager and re-syncronize your mouse .

What kind of mouse is it? If its a USB mouse you can try to reinstall the drivers.
