I just bought a computer a couple of days ago and i have an optical mouse that came with it, it hooks up to the mouse slot next to the keyboard one (rofl, noob at computer terms), When I move the mouse, sometimes it just shoots up to another part of a screen, this is really irritating when I'm trying to do something that needs good precision, any help on what is happening? i have another mouse, which has a ball and it doesn't act up like this one, I also have another optical mouse and it seem to be doing the same thing... any help is appreciated. thanks.

Could possibly be a sensitivity setting. Go to the properties

start/control panel/mouse/device settings/

window, and experiment with the settings. Some programs even show performance for the setting before you apply the change.
