Cursor skips?

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP, Inspiron 9300, 1.73 GHz,

I hate to be so picky about my computer, but this is just getting annoying. My mouse cursor tends to skip - like when I'm moving the cursor from one side to another, sometimes it'll freeze for a second and then keep going. Normally, this wouldn't bother me...but since the mouse is being like this, I can no longer draw normally on my computer because the mouse will screw up my lines.

I've tried increasing the mouse pointer speed, but it doesn't work. I'm wondering if this problem is from the Trojan that's still on my computer, despite the removal programs I've run made to specifically pinpoint and terminate the Trojan.Vundo virus.

Any other thoughts on this? I'm so lost.

Symantec has a removal tool for the Trojan Vunde. Look for it here.

Terii: The mouse is a laser mouse with a cord and a USB plug.

Also, I have downloaded and run that Symantec program to remove the Trojan.Vundo virus 3 times, but the virus can't seem to be cured. When the program finishes running, it says the virus has been taken care of, but when I restart my system, I keep getting the error message saying the virus is on here, the file can't be accessed, etc. Must me the virus is really fond of my system..

Virus and Spyware scans work better in Windows Safe-Mode.
Also nasties like to hide in System Restore files. Turn off System Restore, scan in Safe-Mode to remove, then turn SR back on.

I ran the "FixVundo" program for the fourth time and I guess that did the trick. I haven't gotten the pop-up telling me I have the virus in my system.

Thank you very much for your help, everyone...I have yet to try and draw anything, but hopefully it'll work like it should.
