Mouse with will of its own

Relates to Labtec cordless optical mouse. It does unexpected things without any input from me. Eg it will scroll down a a page. Or if I leave the computer, when I come back it has highlighted a line or so. Sometimes the cursor will change to the compass-like thingy - I don't know what this is for, as you can tell! Can anyone suggest some simple reason for this odd behaviour? Or not so simple, even?

PS now it's just highlighted the the last four lines! ("this...Mike")

Uninstall the drivers, delete the mouse from device manager, restart windows and let windows find the drivers.

Done that, and it seems, fingers crossed, to have done the trick.
A corrupted driver then, eh?
Many thanks!
