Is it a mouse that has a ball underneath or a laser? If it's a ball, remove it and look inside the mouse for dust or dirt. If it's laser, you can't use a laser mouse on a reflective surface.

If these don't work, try the mouse on another computer. If the problem persists, replace the mouse.

Thank you. Also I am wondering why some of my programs are not responsing could it be because of my mouse not working right. I do have a laser which is red light. Can a mouse do that to a computer?

Your computer is getting old or has a virus. It needs to be cleaned and emptied.

Before "cleaning and emptying" anything, try replacing the mouse. It's less hassle and you'll get your answer quick. If nothing changed, simply return the mouse by making sure you have all the items that came in the box and then you can "clean and empty"
