I seem to be a bit slow today... Also english is not my first language.
Thank you both for helping me out.
Will post back if anything helps to solve the problem...

If you do have to run restore losing the updates is not the problem...finding the guilty party is....

Hence my apprehension on restoring. The problem hasn't reared its ugly head for the better part of the afternoon, but I think it will happen again. First thing monday morning, I'm gonna go out & buy a new mouse, just in case it's a hardware problem and 'cause the mouse is 4 years old.

I was just going to suggest a new mouse, they do go bad after a time, especially if it's the old ball type. I have had optical ones cause the cursor to "get drunk" too.

I really hope it's the mouse on the blink, rather than any other hardware malfunction(like the motherboard or USB ports), or some type of malware related problem.

Could also just be a program conflict does it seem to follow any patterns? Also what type mouse is it/ and any special software?

It forces the cursor to rapidly move left, when it comes to the edge of the screen & I move the mouse right, it still keeps movin'. Funny, it hasn't happened the whole afternoon. It's an optical wired USB mouse with the Windows driver, no software of it's own.

It's no longer a problem, don't know exactly what it was, but it's gone now. Good riddance.

Spoke too soon. The problem reapearred an hour ago. Since then, I've scanned with MBAM in safe mode, MSE & found nothing. Unfortunately I didn't have time to buy a new mouse, to see if it really is hardware related. Hmm, it started acting up on the weekend the first time as well. Strange.
Anyway, I better order a new mouse before rolling back any updates.

Which mouse would you reccomend I get?

Right now I'm using a Microsoft 5000 blue track wireless....the mouse works great except the side buttons are very small and not in a convenient location, also the scroll wheel is flaky....however it tracks good and is very accurate in GTA IV.
