Cleaning a Mouse

i've been trying to figure out how to clean my mouse. it doesn't have 1 of those discs that you can turn and remove the ball inside. its by HP and lights up. should i just blast a can of air in it? my mouse is sticking on the screen and acting just wonky. thanks for the help.

I think about all you can do is as you say, use air or I dunno maybe a q-tip to clean off the laser. If your mouse is still screwy after that I would try and reinstall the drivers, you can get them at the HP site, otherwise your mouse could be shot. I have had that happen to me, an optical mouse going kaput.
