Try a different mouse pad. If it's not on a mouse pad, use one. Just be
aware that not all mouse pads will work OK with optical mice. If there is
any kind of reflective coating at all, your optical mouse won't work
ight. -Dave

Try a different mouse. If that does the same, then I would suspect
virus infection.

I had this happen once because some parts of my mouse pad was reflective.
It would jump all over. I replaced the mousepad and everything was fine.

You mean when you move it rapidly to the right, it seems to jump to the
left?

no reflective material can be used with optical mice as a pad. No
glass desk tops and the like.

Have you tried blowing or brushing the dust out of the hole where it
glows? That fixed similar problems with my optical mice.

Another problem I've had is the cord being cut where it exits the
mouse. The cord is held tight by a "U" or "S" shaped channel, but its
sharp corners can cut through the cord. So I take an Xacto knife and
round off the sharp edges.
