packardbell optical mouse

I bought an optical mouse from PC world (packard bell model IO-3UP).

problem is that it moves randomly at times, and when i am playing half life 2, the mouse causes the character to look at the sky and spin around continuously until i move it around again (and occasionally throw the mouse or hit it....).

does anyone know where i can get other drivers from since the ones that came with the mouse obviously arent working.

With a Logitech optical cordless mouse,changed the mouse mat and guess what? cured.

Try using the mouse on a blank A4 sheet of paper to see if it makes a difference.

As it's a corded one, try the different surface, as suggested by Starfox. Also try a good strong 'puff' onto the sensor, just in case there is a small bit of fluff caught. I find it normally cures mine, and i can't even see what's in it, but it stops playing up, so i assume somthing was.
