Windows 7: Mouse freezes every 20 seconds?

Mouse freezes every 20 seconds?

It's a rather intermittent problem. I'm using my mouse, when all of a sudden it freezes. But just as soon as it's frozen it unfreezes and I can continue to use it. This problem is rather irritating and can occur within 5 seconds of each other at the minimum. I checked my CPU usage but that never rose above 40%.

No idea why this is happening but it's getting on my nerves.

Google the mouse make and model + Windows 7 driver or Vista driver to see if there is one to install.

If not, try auto updating the Mouse driver in Device Manager.

Next try uninstalling the Mouse driver on Device Manager driver tab, then restart to reinstall using Power Button (set it to shut down PC in Power Options).

Try configuring Mouse settings in Control Panel.

Eeek: Try another mouse.

I'm not sure, but I may have fixed it by uninstalling the driver like you said. We'll see if the issue pops up again.
