Cursor has a mind of its own!

When my mouse is stationary, the cursor on the screen slowly slides up (usually up and left). It is a ball mouse, any clues as to what is causing this?

Ta :)

(PS, I am not on a slope!)

Have you taken the ball out and cleaned it up inside,Also give the ball a clean.

Also, in the mouse Properties in Control Panel on the Pointer Options tab, untick 'Enhance pointer precision' as this has been known to cause mouse creep.
