Try cleaning the mouse out. Take the ball out and clear the built up lint out of there. -or- recalibrate the mouse.

If you are using an optical mouse, try cleaning the LED and sensor area. If there is debris on the worksurface, i.e dust, clear it, and also try not to use the mouse on highly-reflective surfaces, such as well-polished desks - they interfere with the optical sensor.

Try a different mouse pad, if you even use one. I don't think that would cause a problem though if you haven't changed anything. But yeah, clean the ball/LED area. I don't know if you should use rubbing alcohol, wait for some more replies.

A plain cotton swab or a q-tip should be fine for cleaning out optical mice. As for ball mice, try washing the ball in warm, soapy water and then drying it with a dry cloth. Also, try not using a mousepad at all. I had similar problems with my optical mouse, and I found that using it on a plain desk surface made the mouse much more accurate, and less likely to randomly spin off at a tangent.
