Could be a faulty mouse or other input device. A mouse that jitters even
slightly can cause this. Unplug the mouse - no need to power off - and see
if this cures the problem.

I had the same problem - I have a Microsoft wireless optical mouse. It is as simple as unplugging the USB drive for the mouse when you are done. Plug it back in the next time you want to navigate. I DO have a laptop, so I can get around without the mouse.
