Stop tickling the mouse
Or better still check the sensitivity controls for the mouse

Yep done that.

Remove any hairs etc that are in the sensor under the mouse, replace batteries if cordless.

Optical mouse?, if so unplug and plug in again. If you use an optical mouse but having this problem while not using it find mouse and turn off. Friend had this problem, using computer, had left mouse it bag turned on.

Try a different mouse

Corded mouse?

If a corded mouse they suffer electrical breakdown of the USB cord close to the mouse
Hold the mouse still and just move the cord ans see what the curser does

Had 2 do the same

Optical mice react to certain surfaces erratically, if it is the same area where it previously worked ok give the surface a good clean, or try different mat, those with images or patterns can cause problems.

Is it a laptop ? Your palm might be brushing the onboard mouse.

Change the batteries

Ours was doing that at work, turned out we had a virus.

mine did that and always wondered why - it stopped when I bought a new mouse
