Try another mouse to make sure that it's her mouse that's causing the problem. Then try opening it up to see if there's anything wrong. But, IMO, it'd be easier just to buy another one. Mice and trackballs are fairly cheap.

You could try using a can of compressed air, directing it around the crevices. It might help. Good place for everything cell phones is howardforums.com

I think he misunderstood when he read wheel track ball thing, I did the same. You either need to A) make sure she is not accidentally scrolling the thing when she clicks B ) is clicking it hard. Then, get it checked if no progress.
