Default Mouse problem

Sometimes my mouse freezes up for 2 seconds and doesn't move then it will start moving again. Sometimes it freezes up and i have to un plug it then re plug it in. It it just getting old or is something else wrong?

Definitely try cleaning it out, but ball mouses do start to fail after a while as the parts inside are typically pretty cheap.
