First, stop using explorer... :P Maybe it's sticking, I don't know what you would use to clean it though, I think brake cleaner might ruin something...

You aren't using a mouse with buttons on the side like a Razer Naga? If you are it might be that you are touching the buttons on the side, I had to change the way I grip my mouse for the reason you mention.

Is it wireless? Might need a new battery. But really, mouses (?) are pretty inexpensive.

At work we would prank each other buy putting a piece of tape over the mouse's "eye" on the underside. It would take the person a minute or two to figure it out. LOL Me, it usually took a little longer.

I found one in a ditch. Works great. And yes, I'm talking about a computer mouse. Optical too.

Here's the mouse you need. It also launches patriot missiles and cleans the garage.
