It may or may not be faulty, could be a settings problem. Go to Control Panel, Hardware and sound, Devices and Printers, Right click on the mouse and look for a menu that says Settings. You should be able to return these to default.

You don't say if it is a wired or wireless mouse or if it is the old trackball style or optical. That plus your Operating System would help to pin the problem down.

I have a wireless mouse (Packard Bell) that plays up on occasions. Usually a clean of the three internal rollers (fluff) and battery change does the trick.

What make/model is your wireless mouse?.

The last time that happened to me I changed the battery which made no difference and ended up buying a new mouse.
