Check - administration mouse. You would be able to configure mouse from there. Also try running mouseconfig (it is there in slackware and *bsd) and try to reconfigure mouse.

Some pointers that may help:
1) Try creating a new user and see if the mouse works properly.
2) I installed scientific linux and it has sysconfig-mouse. I think Red Hat would have a simillar option.
If this mouse is a PS2 then change it to something else and then change it back to PS2.
Since all these commands are to be executed as root back up the files if needed. I would back up my entire /etc if I was doing this.
Hope this helps.

mouseconfig may require root permissions. Did you try the command after logging in root?
http://linuxcommand.org/man_pages/mouseconfig8.html

Did you install the guest additions in vmware?
