A Mouse Gone Wild is a common problem.


Is this a new mouse?

If so, what name and model is it?

Welcome to the world of XP. It can be great, but it can also be a problem. Try this: Go to start >> control panel >> printers and other hardware >> mouse >> pointer options. Adjust the pointer speed to your preference. Adjust other properties if needed.

Does this help?

Make sure the optical mouse is used on a clean dark surface that isn't reflective. Turn the mouse over and blow out any dirt/dust particles from the laser.
