2. It's an optical mouse, they tend to do this depending on the surface they're on.

I have an optical mouse and if I lift it about a centimeter off the table, the mouse goes crazy and jumps around.

That's because the sensor can't see the light properly.

while i was reinstalling my OS i saw one new feature the Remote Desktop Assistance i think it was called where someone can control your computer from theirs if they are connected it may work if connected wirelessly but i dont know this program or whatever it is too well i just though it was cool.

Remote Assistance has been around for years in one form or another (originally part of Microsoft NetMeeting in Windows98, perhaps Windows95, I can't remember which). In WindowsXP it works with the Help and Support Center and Windows Live Messenger. Windows Vista has it as a stand-alone program. It's nothing new, though.
