cursor with a mind of its own
This can happen if the 'snap to' feature of the Microsoft Intelli Type software is enabled.
Not sure if this applies to your mouse but here's what to do anyway because it may help someone else.
To resolve the problem, disable the 'snap to' feature, download and install the updated pointer files from the Microsoft download centre. as follows.
1. press CTRL+ESC to open the start menu.
2. Use the up arrow key to select 'settings', press the right arrow key to select 'control panel', and press enter.
3. Use the arrow keys to select the keyboard icon, and press enter.
4. Press SHIFT+TAB, press right arrow, and then press right arrow to select the pointer activity tab.
5. Press TAB three times, and then press Space Bar to clear the 'Snap pointer to default button in dialog boxes' check box.
6. Press TAB twice, and then press Enter.
7. Close the control panel.
8. Download and install the '11p32upd.exe' file from the Microsoft download centre.
After the download has been installed, you can use the mouse tool in control panel to re-enable the 'Snap to' feature.
I had this problem to solve and found the answer on the Microsoft support site.
Hope this helps with your problem.
