Mouse trouble

Logitech wireless mouse started jumping around and finally froze.  Now replaced with crappy old wired hardware pending solution. What hasn't worked: replacing mouse batteries; Windows troubleshooting; disconnecting & rebooting.  Hardware worked fine out of the box and for several months since. Internet provides lots of 'have you tried', but no, I haven't tried to reinstall drivers yet. Possible causes: someone's auto-update has loaded something that interferes; new wireless phones (but they've been here a month now and the problem is as of this week).

Any suggestions from one of you tech-savvy people out there, before I waste even more time?

My jumpy mouse problems are almost always hair or dust on the sensor; as you don't explicitly mention cleaning the sensor I'd definitely check that. When replacing the mouse batteries there will be some connection buttons to press -- did you do that?

If less than a year old then might well be under guarantee.

I'd second that: it doesn't take much to obstruct sensors.

Thanks. It worked after the red buttons got pressed - must find and read the manual for next time...
