Windows 7: Mouse settings change by themselves

Mouse settings change by themselves

This happens sometimes when playing games, perhaps flash games, on a web browser. The mouse will suddenly get very slow, or very fast, and requiring altering in Mouse Settings. Any way to stop this from happening? Everything's updated, of course. I'm thinking a memory problem causes the settings to reset to default?
