Jumping Cursor

My cursor has started to jump erratically around the screen. I am running Win XP Pro SP2 and haven't upgraded or changed any settings recently. I cannot find any answer why this might have started happening. I have checked for updated drivers and there are none. I have a track pad and an external USB mouse and the cursor jumps when using either. Can anyone please suggest why this might be and what I can do about it? Many thanks.

Search on the computer for 'Crazy Mouse' or 'Drunk Mouse'. It may be a prank program:

I have a similar problem where the cursor randomly jumps to all corners of the screen, just to one corner then I get control back. I am not sure if it does this, if there is something happening in the background. Have checked for 'drunk mouse and crazy mouse' but nothing comes up.

Many thanks Graham, I'll give it a go.
