standard usb keyboard
are you sure someone did not dial into your pc remotly and is moving the mouse on you?? have you tried booting into safe mode without network support and see if the mouse work fine. if it does i would use malware and an virus scan
I would try the following:
1) Power off. Move the USB connection to different usb port on the PC. Power on.
2) Power off. Replace the mouse using a different usb port on the PC. Power on.
3) Power off. Replace the keyboard using a different usb port on the PC. Power on.
If none of these items work - I would think you have an issue with the USB controller on the motherboard.

@smorizio yeh ive tried all that bud . . . no luck
I had the same problem, when cleaned my desk surface and went back to a mouse pad it improved. When I cleaned the underside of my mouse and made sure all dust, fur and misc particles were off the laser lens the problem stopped. If that doesn't work try their tech support.
@i still need help on this issue if anyone had a fix for me
Like RoninTexas said it has got to be the usb controller on your motherboard, but if the cursor moves without having mouse even plugged in then it also has got to be some sort of driver or registry problem at the same time, but yet again you said that you did a fresh install of windows 7 so this means that the only constant between both installs of windows 7 would be the physical hardware of the computer and the same copy of windows 7 so it could be one of 2 things: 1) faulty motherboard, and/or 2) Corrupt copy of Windows 7. I would start by getting into contact with your motherboard manufacturer and if they cant figure it out call Microsoft and deal with them until resolved.
If it's happening w/o a mouse plugged in I don't think a mouse pad will help. Perhaps your USB drivers are corrupted. You could go into the device manager and delete all the USB hubs. Then the system will detect them and reinstall the drivers see if that helps.
This is not a USB problem. I have a PS2 (Mini-DIN) connector mouse, and occasionally the mouse cursor zooms to the bottom left corner of the screen. VERY annoying. Does it even with a brand-new mouse. Windows7 x64.
i had the same problem with my mouse even though it was unplugged the pointer moved around the screen when finally i entered "device manager" and saw under "mice and other pointing device " i saw 2 things plugged in i uninstalled 1 and my mice dident work so i replugged it to the pc and uninstalled the other 1 and it did it and i never saw that problem again
In my case, the mouse had two controls--each working against the other--making the mouse erratic. Somehow both the synaptic and Elan were operating--making the mouse unusable, both on the laptop mouse and a separate mouse. By returning to only Elan--turning off the synaptic--the mouse does not have a mind of its own. I don't fully understand it, but it seems the mouse that came with the computer was being overtaken by another downloaded alternative that needed to be disabled. Once that was done, the mouse has not moved on its own.
