First change the surface on which you run your mouse - just try with a sheet of plain paper and see if it makes any difference.
Second - use a fine brush to 'sweep' around the optical sensor - I've read about hair being caught in the sensor an causing all kinds of wierd behaviour.
Third - A cheap and easy way to determine if it is your mouse or your system is to buy another mouse and swap it out. If the problem goes away the mouse is defective.
If the problem remains you need to do some anti-virus and anti-spyware scans. Post back for advice on which ones to do.
