Windows 7: USB Mouse Freezes

USB Mouse Freezes

http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...e-b3f74165dc23

I have the exact same problem like the user in that thread is having. I do not know why; I have tried to do a system restore before the problem started, but it is still continuing. If at all possible, the last action I want to take is a complete reformat.

Nonetheless, could someone assist me with this problem please? I am a gamer, and this problem just makes it difficult to play anything!

Synopsis of problem:
At times when I move my mouse, it would just freeze for a second or so; then it unfreezes, which is also accompanied by a "windows event sound" pretty much all of the time. My mouse is a Microsoft Intellimouse Optical 1.1a.

Thanks!

Even when I used a different port, the problem persists. As for mouse change, I used another Microsoft Intellimouse I have, and the problem still continues.

On a side note, I tried both mice on my old computer and the problem is not occurring.

Could this be a driver conflict? :s I have tried uninstalling my mouse's drivers and it did not fix anything. The more I think about it, the less hopeful I am of regaining control of this computer.

Open Task Manager.
Sort by CPU Usage (twice, high on top).

Move the mouse.

Does CPU usage spike, and if yes, what process?

The CPU usage does not spike.

BTW, I very much appreciate your assistance Casca. =)

Understood, but did the mouse hang/freeze?

No, it did not. It happens at some of the most inconvenient times, the little bugger...

And, just to rule out the absurd - Disable ALL Windows system sounds.

How would I do that, Casca?

EDIT: I just saw your thumbnail.

Okay, I will post back later in the topic if the problem occurs again.

Once more, thank you Casca.
