sounds like something's gone wrong with the mouse itself. best bet is to just buy a cheap replacement.

I have observed VERY weird behavior out of optical mice when something was stuck on the underside of it. Also, I've observed this behavior while sitting perfectly flat on a reflective surface.

If it's a laptop it might have one of those little pencil eraser type pointers in the center of the keyboard... I know that many IBMs had this... in fact, I've got an HP tablet PC at my desk right now with one of those. I suppose that could be the source of your moving cursor.
