Bought a new mouse because frankly the old one was gettin on a bit and was unreliable.
so i bought a new one (as you do)

its worse than the old one!

ive installed the drivers off the disk, plugged it in and the cursors all over the place.

why could this be??

A Virus?
Rubbish Mouse?
Im a dummy?

Try giving the mouse ball/contacts a good clean. The rollers in particular

Is it cordless? or perhaps Median?

Check for new Drivers, uninstall and try again

Take out the drivers and try it without. basic mouse functions don't require any specail drivers.

Some optical mouses/mice require calibration, see if there is an icon in the system tray or look in control panel.
