I experienced something similar a while ago.  My problem turned out to be a
faulty mouse cable.  In my case, I had to shut down the computer, unplug the
mouse, plug it back in and power up.  I know this is a very Redmond-like
solution, but it fixed my problem.

It's a long shot, but you might try using a different mouse.
