Regardless of whether or not the mouse buttons are reversed for a left-handed person, the cursor movement should remain the same.

Is this a wireless mouse? Are the buttons working correctly?

It may sound crazy, but is the mouse turned 180 degrees?

Two more. :) Does this happen for every application, and have you restarted the computer?

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

If the mouse contains a battery (ie a wireless or bluetooth mouse) try removing the battery for 30 seconds then put it back.

nykizi,

Please let us know if you solve the problem, and if you do,
how you solved it. People keep saying their mouse pointer
is moving backwards, and I never find out what caused it.

A shut down, unplug, press the power button 5 or 6 times to make sure all capacitors are discharged. Then plug it in again and try starting it again. It could be one of those rare glitches that only can be fixed with everything starting from a completely clean load from the drive without any lingering errors.
Always worth a try when the weird stuff appears and does not go away easily.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I agree that resetting everything is likely to fix the problem,
but I'm getting more and more anxious to find out what the
cause could possibly be. I've seen it done intentionally as
a joke, decades ago, but this seems pretty clearly not to be
an intentional prank, and it happens quite a lot, despite the
fact that it is the sort of thing that shouldn't be possible to
happen by accident.

thank you. It turns out the battery was getting weak. Also I am in a third world country and the mouse is a cheap Chinese make. It was fixed by an expert and will need a mousepad to work properly now.
