Cursor with optical mouse frequently won't move on screen

My cursor is 'sticky'.  Frequently it won't move at all, then works normally for a while.  I have the Logitech optical mouse. I put in fresh batteries, also to my Logitech keyboard, but it didn't help.  I usually use the mouse on a black desk mat, and sometimes it helps when I put in on a white background, but I often have the same problem there.  Can someone help me with this?

Do you have the same issue if you use the mouse on a different computer?

Check the light levels and the shinyness of the mat / table.  If there is too much reflection it will fail.  try a dull mouse mat.
