On a WIN98 PC the mouse will move and drop down boxes will start appearing for no reason. Three(3) different mice have been tried. A virus scan has been preformed and no viruses where found.

If the cat is laying around the keyboard [which most cats love to do while your working] the mouse WILL behave erratically trying to hide from the cat.

Kick the cat off the table. The mouse should then go back to normal.

seriously though is your mouse a wheel or optical? USB or PS/2? Erratic behavior can be as simple as lint and dirt build up inside the wheel mouse to a corrupted mouse driver. cleaning the ball and rollers on a wheel mouse or just reloading the mouse drivers will fix the problem. If you want to reload mouse drivers, delete the mouse via the Device Manager and let Windows rediscover the mouse. If you have a mouse driver disk, you can update the drivers, again via Device manager.
