Constant Mouse Problems

I have changed my mouse but I still am having the same following problem:

The mouse keeps jumping to the top left of the screen and when playing first person shooters, the display starts to spin as though I have moved the mouse real quick, it is not a virus problem, so any ideas, done all mouse settings by way to no avail.

You could try looking in ADD/REMOVE programs to see if you have had a program called crazy mouse downloaded on you. If it is not there, try START /SEARCH, and type in Crazy mouse. If you get any results delete them.

Checked and no Crazy Mouse, any other ideas andyone, as this is just a real pain this problem.

If you have already checked START/CONTROL PANEL/MOUSE, then apart from Crazy Mouse I am stumped. If this only occurs in a particular game maybe it has become corrupted in some way. Can you uninstall it, then run Crap Cleaner and RegScrub XP to clean the registry, and then reinstall it?

My mouse started playing up, developed a mind of its own. I checked everything , reinstalled, the lot. It's optical. I put a folded sheet of new white printing paper underneath instead or the old mouse mat that I was using. Cured!!

I have several optical cordless rodents and 1 of them is accurate on any surface, I think I could use that one on a bed of gravel and still get accurate response.

Other 2 are very temperamental, 1 will work best on a white surface and the other on a black surface. Once you've found the best option for your mouse, you will find it to be very responsive and extremely accurate.

I was beginning to think I was crazy. Put mouse underneath mouse. It's like magic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks
