Welcome to GTG steveonz :D

Could be a number of things. Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

It might be a hardware issue. Have opened up and cleaned out the mouse? Also, is it on a decent surface? Sorry if the questions sound stupid, I'm trying to eliminate possibilities. <_<
