Exclamation Mouse Problem

I'm using a "AZZA optical 1600dpi gaming mouse," this one here,
Amazon.com: AZZA Gaming Mouse - USB: Explore similar items

The problem is that the mouse recently started acting odd. Moving the mouse up moves the cursor left, moving left moves it down, and ect. The right click also stopped working. All other buttons seem fine though.

No one else seemed to have the problem so I tried rebooting but to no avail. The problem is probably with the mouse, because my old mouse works fine.
Bit distressed because I actually liked that mouse. Help would be greatly appreciated.

OS: Win 8.1 64x

Tried reinstalling the mouse drivers?

Did the mouse come with any software to install? If so, have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling it?

Tried blowing out the optical sensor to make sure there's no dust there?

I reinstalled the drivers and blew the sensor as you suggested , nothing changed. The mouse didn't come with software. Thanks though.

Tried a different set of USB ports (i.e. front vs back)?

Tried it on another computer to see if it acts the same way?

Both sets of ports or both computers?

Then I'd say the mouse is bad. If it's under warranty, RMA it. Otherwise, you'll have to just get a new one.
