Unless you have recently changed any settings or installed new software/drivers I would do the following..

1, if a ball mouse clean it or get a new one

2, if a optical mouse bin it, get a new one

Its an optical wireless mouse and no im not going to bin it lol.

Wireless - interference
Rollerball - fluff
Optical - strange surface
Pranks - search for 'Crazy mouse'

In IE (assuming you use IE) in tools internet options and advanced is smooth scrolling enabled?

As soon as I saw the word wireless I thought batteries.
As long as its sorted.
