I have an optical mouse and just recently it has taken to wandering around my monitor screen of its own volition!! and sometimes even jumping from one side of the screen to the other, does anyone have an explanation for this? or do I need the services of an exorcist!

Do you have a very reflective or with no pattern surface?

I've seen this on for example a white surface or a reflective mouse mat. Try a different mouse mat / no mouse matt.

Yip, that was it, I tried the mouse on the surface of a black book cover and that solved the problem! Thank you silverous.

No probs - tick it as solved if you wouldn't mind?
