Windows 7: Mouse Pointer

Mouse Pointer

Hello, I have Win7 for about a year now and I really didn't have any problems up until a few months ago. My mouse pointer would start refreshing/flickering every 5 minutes or so and it would slow down anything I was watching or playing at the time. It doesn't really bother me when I watch movies because I can just shake the mouse and it would stop but when I play games I can't do anything about it and so I can't really play any games. I asked my repair man, he also has Win7 but he didn't know how to fix it. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Maybe new mouse
Maybe the mouse driver in device manager. Go to device manger and take a look.
Update driver and look for yellow warning markers.

Make a full anti virus scan and downloand and make a full malwarebytes scan

If that is negative we work on mouse settings next.

This may be a long shot. For a test, go into Services and disable the Windows Driver Foundation. That has once cured a similar problem for me.
