Yes this is a common sign of a mouse on the way out. I have had the same problem recently with my missus' cheap mikomi USB optical mouse. As stated earlier, it's more complicated and time consuming to repair, simply replace. I bought a new one for £1, no joke. _________________

Well, even while it's not good to spend more when you could spend less, most often you get what you pay for, that's why more expensive merchandise or mice have the higher quality, and those cost the companies more to manufacture and/or sell.
If you buy about any PC mouse a Walmart company has to offer, it'll most likely break way too quick to get a fair use...that's what happens with some of the sweat shop items.
If you went to a Target, electronics specialty store like Best Buy, or the equal if those aren't in the UK, you'll much more likely find one worth your buck, or pound rather heh.
Optical is way better than ball mouse, but if you want to go for performance and extra quality, you might want to look into those Microsoft Bluetrack mice, even newer than Laser and supposed to work even on carpet surfaces. I couldn't try one yet since they don't have Lefty-friendly ones last time I checked. _________________ Pron: It's porn for the dyslexic.

Ya know, back in the 90's, there was a very strange guy living in Columbia, SC who rode his giant bicycle everywhere, always listening to his Walkman. He came into our strip clubs sometimes and ordered 6 or 8 beers at a time (one for him and the rest for his imaginary friends). We had to kick his crazy ass out once and he slashed the owner's tires.
The few people who were brave enough to talk to him all said that he claimed to be from A Blue World, so we all called him The Blue World Guy. A long shot, but I wonder if this song is about that guy. Frankly, I think it would make a fine soundtrack to waterboarding.
