Lately I have been experiencing some mouse behaviour problems. I notice that it seems to be sluggish at times and is jerky. Sometimes the mouse will halt and then just go haywire, opening up the startmenu and hopping all about the screen. The longer the system runs it seems to get progressively worse until the mouse pointer just freezes altogether and will not move. The rest of the system works just fine, I can navigate through the system by the keyboard. I just don't know what is causing the problem.

At first I thought perhaps it was a physical problem with the mouse, but decided that if that was so, the problem wouldn't clear up on reboot. I have scanned my system for both virus and spyware and it is currently clean. It is a Logitech Optical Mouse with a PS/2 connector. If anyone has any suggestions it would be much appreciated. The following is a Hijack log of my current settings:

Hi and welcome. Does it act the same way on a different type of surface?
