My mouse does the same thing.. Mine also will also quickly move itself to the bottom left corner and dissapear faster than is humanly possible. Is your mouse optical, or one of the old mice with a ball?

Ball mice are fine, you just got to clean the junk off the rollers every now and then.
Anyone ever get a hair stuck under their optical? I have, makes using the mouse impossible.
