Did you change anything with your setup at all around the same time this probably happened?

I'd start by reinstalling the drivers for the mouse.

I'd also check to see if there are any conflicts in the device manager.

Is it possible the mouse is going bad?

I haven't used XP in a while to know exactly the steps to getting to it, but in win 7, I right click "My Computer" and select Device, then device manager is in the list to choose. You may find it in the control panel.

This is also quite possible.

I found Device Manager and it does not show any problems. I am going to take the mouse to BestBuy and have them check it. I may just have to buy a new mouse.
