Hi barnseytheref

I'd suspect the trouble is with the mouse itself (or touchpad or wheel). Shut down Windows, and power off - and try another mouse if you have one. If the behavior is suddenly all good - you need to either fix the old mouse or replace it.

If your mouse is a wireless mouse, it might just need new batteries.

If your mouse is an optical mouse, and your computing surface has glass or highly reflective material, try placing the mouse on a large sheet of paper or fabric & see if it tracks better then.

Best of luck
