Tried This?

Open the Control Panel, then double click on the "Mouse" icon, then select the "Pointer Options" tab. Once there, UNCHECK the box next to "Enhance pointer precision", then click on "apply", then OK.

Of course, if you've got an optical mouse, even the tightening of the mouse cable can cause such to move a little. But as asked by the previous poster, you've given us little information about WHEN you're seeing the issue, the TYPE of mouse your using, the OPERATING SYSTEM, etc.

Hope this helps.
