    I have been having issues with my mouse at times getting stuck in the middle of the screen bouncing around with no way to control the direction.  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software with the same issue.  

     

    Your help is appreciated.

    Well, when that happens to me, I make sure there’s not a cat hair interfering with the red light on the underside of my mouse.

    Seriously.

    Had the same over the last weeks. Finally decided to get a new mouse and its all fine now.

    When you read through the product reviews on Amazon you can get quite a good feel for the issues that come with optical mice. Some die earlier others later :)

    Got a cabled one now and it feels better than the cordless I had before.

    Cordless involves a battery which may run empty...

    As AD implied, the laser sensor has seen many blow-ons from me to clean it. The wrong surface may also cause trouble - a simple sheet of paper may help!

    A simple corded mouse has proven best for me - it may be cheap!
