    Maybe use a mousepad? Even though they're not necessary for traction anymore, they can still improve your mousing experience.

    Amen.

    My Apple Mouse is sitting in a drawer somewhere, looking pretty, but being useless.

    The Microsoft Intellimouse is a really nice mouse...lots of buttons and great shape. I use a trackball for normal computer work, but if I have to use a mouse an Intellimouse is the way to go.

    Is it a Mighty Mouse? (Are they including those with the new PMs?) If so, it's a common problem, but easily fixed. Turn the mouse over and sort of pry the middle section out or side to side so that it's properly aligned. My Mighty Mouse squeaked horribly when I first got it a couple months ago. I did that to it, and it hasn't squeaked at all since.
