Cursor/Pointer lagging on laptop

Hey!

So a few days ago my cursor started lagging. Everything else run normally - it's just the cursor. Occasionally it goes smooth again, but then returns to lag-ville after a while.

I've ran NOD32 antivirus scans, cleaned my registries with CCleaner, ran Spybot, tried reinstalling/updating mouse and display drivers. Still nothing.

You have lots of Chrome stuff running. Do you use Chrome as your browser? If not uninstall it. If yes, uninstall, reboot and reinstall, see if that helps.
