hmm....which kind are you using, ball mouse, optical mouse, or laser mouse?

if it's wireless, check for interference from a radio or something, I've heard (rarely) that that can interfere with it. Also, try checking the batteries, cleaning it, things like that. Hope that helps!

the old system...
EVGA GeForce 6600GT
Enermax Whisper II 535W PSU

The same used to happen to a old computer I had. I think the computer was just old or maybe it was a virus/malaware problem.
What solved my problem was a new computer.

I don't think purchasing a new computer is a practical way to solve a problem caused by a small mouse.

i would remove the mouseball, get a DAMP cloth, and clean the ball/internal rollers of the muouse.

also, go to start -> control panel -> mouse, and check to make sure the mouse is moving at a good speed.
