You might try to adjust the sensitivity,
Still might need the make and model but if you go to your control panel and click on Mouse,
You should see Mouse Properties,
And Device settings,

Then on mine Touch sensitivity on on the very bottom,

Just out of curiosity .... your system specs says it is a desktop. Was there a touchpad present?

Sometimes its as easy as uninstalling the driver for the mouse in Device Manager, reboot using the touchpad to reinstall the mouse driver.

Other things to try are changing the batteries and the USB port on a wireless mouse, and pressing the Reset button underneath.

Does the problem happen when you use the same mouse on another PC?

I just have the laptop and don't use the mouse anywhere else. I am keeping track of all the suggestions I have received here in case disabling the touchpad doesn't work. I appreciate your suggestions.

I have a laptop (see previous posts). Don't have any idea how you know my system specs. I don't believe I entered any since this is my first Acer product and am usually too embarrassed to ask many questions here.

I am having a real problem with my cursor jumping to the bottom when I attempt to reply to someone's email. Sometimes it will type the first few letters and then jump to the bottom and finish the word there. Does anyone know how to fix this?
