Mouse dances around the screen on first use.

Asked by

After booting, upon first use of my mouse, the mouse cursor goes berzerk all over the screen, and sometimes opens up windows at random as if they were clicked. This problem fixes itself after a few seconds, but the problem will repeat on every reboot.

Try moving your mouse before you log in (where it can't do any damage).

Can you help with this problem?
