Hi, all of a sudden my mouse suddenly shows signs of inteligence aka it moves across the screen (the cursor, not the mouse as that would be some trick... lol) when I am not even moving it myself.
I have done the obvious things (chaning batteries, moving mobile phone out of the room, changing the frequency of what it uses, done the virus, adware, spyware scans and moved the reviever nearer and closer to the mouse and keyboard) but it hasn't helped. It doesn't always move at all, but other times it moves to the other side (sometimes di-angle (sorry about spelling), horrizontal, vertical or sometimes avery directions possible)
I have tried resting the mouse on a piece of A4 plain paper (as I have seen a post from someone saying it actually works for an optical mouse)
Strangely, I find that a 'mouse mat' is not very successful under an optical mouse. If the clean sheet of paper doesn't work, could it be electrical interference from some machinery, yours or a neighbours?
