When I start my PC (windows Vista) the curser moves about the screen and is difficult to hit the icons . Can you help?

Are you using a wireless mouse?

This may be caused by a fault mouse.

I use to have a fancy mouse-mat with a woodland pic on it - and my laser mouse used to wander about the screen when I wasn't touching it. If you have a mouse-mat like that change it for a plain piece of paper.

Can you try a different mouse?

  unitedman 13:25 13 Nov 2013

no, but I will borrow one as it might be the problem…. Thanks

Have you cleaned the internals of the mouse?
