Problems with Trust Optical Wireless Mouse 15349

I bought this mouse for my laptop a couple of months ago, and have to say that it has worked very well up until a few days ago. Now I find that when I use the roller wheel to scroll a page, it seems not to hold, and the page frequently jumps back, if that makes sense.
With a 'normal' mouse, I'd just clean the ball and the internal rollers, but I've got no idea what to do here, or even if there is a way to resolve the problem.
This mouse was not that expensive, and I don't intend replacing it just because the roller is not working as it should, but if someone knows how to fix it then I'd be interested to know.

As it's wireless maybe the batteries need replacing?

I'll second rdave13's suggestion.

Yes, I'd thought of that, but I changed them not long ago, and there is no sluggishness as far as the movement of the pointer/cursor is concerned.
