Hi have you run an antivirus program to see if you have any., also run antspy as well, also well you are doing that, do a disk cleanup and defrag, that should speed you laptop up.

Is this an optical mouse?
Sometimes the mouse pad will cause this, with an optical.
Try a pad without a pattern on it, just plain.

Is it running all around on its own or is it delayed following where you moved the mouse and skipping intermittantly?
