go into settings, devices, then mouse, additional mouse options, pointer options, then tick display pointer trails, move it all the way to short and apply.. your mouse will never mess up again after that!!!!

So it's simple; just started happening to myself...
1. You hit windows key and type 'MOUSE'
2. Click mouse & touchpad settings
3. 'Additional Mouse Options"
4. Then I click on Scheme under 'Pointers' i believe
changed it to something (@ random), changed it back, and APPLIED. Fixes it for me... no idea what causes it
Hope that solves the issues

You my friend, are a genius. I know I am some 3 years late but this still happens, on Windows 10 too. So hopefully this helps others.

This might be an issue related with the drivers for the mouse after installing Windows 7; you may try updating the drivers for the mouse from the Device Manager and check.
· Are you using Desktop computer or Laptop?
1. Click Start.
2. Type Device Manager in Start search.
3. Expand Mice and other Pointing devices in device manager window.
4. Right Properties.
5. Click on driver tab.
6. Click Update drivers.
7. Click OK.
Check if any exclamation marks are shown with the device. The exclamation mark shows an issue with the driver installed.
Refer the link to update the drivers: Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isnt-working-properly
I also suggest that you manually download the drivers from the manufacturer’s website and try installing the same on the computer and check.
You may also try connecting mouse to different port and check, this is to narrow down the issue if the issue is with mouse or with ports. You may also try connecting different mouse to the computer and try connecting this mouse to different computer and check.
