Sticky Mouse

Can anyone help me please?
My mouse seems to be behaving erratically!
1) It seems reluctant to move i.e. it has to be "persuaded" to move.
2) Sometimes it moves or drifts on its own.
My OS is XP (Home) SP2 and I also have an AIPTEK Tablet --- with the pen in a drawer out of harms way. I use the mouse on a mat on top of the tablet --- could this be the cause? [I do remember to clean the rollers and the ball!]

Pick up a glossy mag or note pad or similar place the mouse on this and see if the mouse is still erratic.

also check in control panel/mouse and check the settings.
