Try a different usb slot if it is a usb mouse. If you were to put it on a different pc would it do the same thing?

Mouse = cheap? Buy a new one? Get one of those logitec optical mouses. If that doesn't work then try new usb slot.

Are you using a PS/2 attachment on a USB interface? If so... try taking it off. A friend recently had the same issue!
