I have been having this pesky and VERY annoying mo9use problem and I am open to any advice you can offer.
First a little background. I used to run on Windows Vista (which was a resource hog), but I have since upgraded to Windows 7 which, at least so far and aside from this one issue, has worked much better for me. Back when I was on Vista I had a wireless mouse and it worked fine for a while then I started getting a problem with the mouse freezing briefly (with a "bloop" sound like the USB Bluetooth had been unplugged, then another "bloop" as it resumed working). I tried all of the things I detail below and could not resolve it, so I went back to a corded mouse and that worked fine. Now I am getting the same issue with my corded mouse on Windows 7. I again have tried all the things below, but to no avail so far. I have Googled but cannot find anything additional beyond what I have already attempted.
What I have tried:
Virus scan in and out of Safe Mode
Spyware scan in and out of Safe Mode
Updating nVidia drivers (seemed to fix it for a while, but then prob returned)
Setting Windows Installer startup to manual
Tried a different corded mouse
Disabled unused services
Replaced the default Windows Aero pointer scheme with a different one
And tried some other stuff I can't even remember now
Has anyone else ever run into this? Any idea what I should try next?
