Unresponsive Cursor in gaming

Does anyone have a solution for a problem I am having? I have loaded 6 games and 2 of them work fine but the other 4 do not. They all install fine but when the Load screen comes on the cursor is frozen to one spot and will not move. I have all the latest drivers installed. Any Ideas???

What are the games that will not work? Are they online games that look for the net to play? If they are they might be trying to access the firewall and windows is stopping them from going any farther. To see if that is the case Alt-Tab out when the mouse freezes and see if there is a window open asking you for firewall access.

Have you tried running them as an "Administrator", do it by right clicking the icon, and selecting "Run As Administrator".

I have to do that with Ventrilo, or else I can't use my Push-To-Talk button when playing fullscreen games.

Another tip would be to run the game in compatibility mode of Windows XP SP2/3 or Vista. I do that with some of my games, such as EVE Online or else it tells me I have insufficient rights to execute it or it errors me.
