Windows 7: Optical USB mouse lags!!!

Optical USB mouse lags!!!

Hi everyone, I have a really weird problem. I have a simple USB optical mouse. The mouse sometimes lags! It stops moving, and it also doesn't have reaction for pressing buttons. It wasn't annoying really, until I started to play an FPS game. The lagging is sometimes short but still annoying, and I think it depends on CPU load which could be low, but sometimes it stucks at low CPU load too. Weird. I had a PS/2 optomechanical mouse before this, which was good, but I started to hate to clean it.

- check batteries
- is optical receiver visible (line of sight)?
- did it always lag?
- try changing video settings

Oh sorry I didn't said, it's not wireless. And no it not always lags, just sometimes, for example, when I open an application, and my HDD is working, but it's weird, because in the case of the also not wireless (PS/2) mouse there was no problem like this.

Is this on a desktop or laptop? If desktop, do you have both of the mice you mention plugged in at the same time?

Do you have a clean surface for the mouse to be on?
Did you clean the optical part on the bottom?

It's a desktop computer, and my mouse is on a clear surface. I had two mice plugged in, but I disconnected the PS/2 one, but it is still not perfect. Sometimes I press a mouse button, I release it, but it doesn't detect in time. Sometimes I drag the tabs in Google Chrome because of the for example. So it is sometimes stops, when I move, sometimes, it doesn't detect mouse button release correctly. It delays.
