Windows 7: Mouse cursor & functions are lagging behind by a few seconds

Are you using Bluetooth keyboard and mouse? That kind of lag can occur when using wireless kb & mouse, especially Bluetooth, when the receiver has some issues or when batteries in kb or mouse are almost empty.

If this is the case, check the batteries and if necessary update Bluetooth drivers.

Ok but I know with CCleaner you have to be very careful when using it because you can mess some things up.

What function of it do I need to use to clean temp memory & cache etc?

I'm using chrome, I'll look into their forums on increasing my browser cache.

I am using the microsoft wireless natural media keyboard & wireless intelli mouse, but I have the receiver literally right next to them right now and I've never had this issue before. And the batteries are new-er...

It just almost seems as the computer itself is slower and not working right.

I would go easy with the Ccleaner, good for limited use, in my opinion

Do regular maintenance. Disc Scan, cleanup, delete temporary files, etc.

Read this, ignore the part about Cc.

Yeah again I'm hardly the authority but when I say to use cCleaner, I just use the initial cleaning part on a regular basis and not anything else.

I have used the registry cleaner and from what I hear its one of the safest but even with that, now I really won't do that unless I really think I need it for some reason as I think it has cause some harm in the past.

For me I have pretty much check all the boxes for the system and the apps but I leave the advanced section alone.

For the most part I think that is probably OK but it wouldn't surprise me that over time this may cause issues. But as far as any app out there that I know of that is the best performing per safety one that I know of.

If you are worried about it though my best recommendation might be to go to some kind of the dedicated cCleaner board for which here is theirs: Piriform Community Forums -> CCleaner Discussion and maybe post about your setup and see if you can get any recommendations for a safe clean.

As well just to mention, one thing I have had to do is that if there are any cookies that you want to be sure to keep, IE say something like your Google pref, you might want to do a clean, visit and just setup those sites, then go into the "Options>Cookies" section and see if you can figure out which ones those are and choose to save them. This way you don't have to deal with re-setting up stuff for sites like that after every cleaning.

As well to mention that one thing I have found is that cCleaner is really good at saving that during any of their updates so hopefully once you pick these out, that should really be the last time you will ever have to do this.

Hope that helps.

Very wise. Everything that I have read about reg cleaners, they are nothing but trouble. I use ccleaner, myself, but dont fool with the reg portion. Just regular maintenance to clean the drive etc.

If you are using a WiFi router, try to change its frequency (channel) and see if it helps. Conflicting frequencies can also produce this kind of behavior.

You may be experiencing high DPC. Try disabling Microsoft Security Essential's Auto-Protection. If that fixes the problem then know that Microsoft is aware of the problem and are working on a fix. Some people have been lucky to be able to disable and then re-enable the auto-protection and the problem stays fixed until the next reboot.
