Default Mouse moving sporadically on an Inspiron 4000

Hey 1st post but I have an old Dell Inspiron 4000(Girlfriend's), formatted it, reinstalled Me but I still have the same problem where the mouse will just MOVE without any touching. It'll run and hide in a corner if you know what I mean. I have to drag it out using the Touch Bud which I think is the problem. Or a loose wire cause I have reinstalled all the mouseware drivers. Is there any way that i can disable the touch bud in the settings? I think it may be jammed or slighty stuck because the pointer always goes to the bottom right or bottom left part of the screen. Thanks

I think you can delete it in system properties and then opt not to install when Windows prompts you to.

They come with cheap optical mouses made by Microsoft. Just get a new mouse - you can't do anything about it - All the mice do this (every new Dell computer at my school has this problem)
