    Exclamation Mouse freezes randomly

    i was wondering if anyone has any ideas as to the nature of my problem.
    so my mouse will freeze randomly for a few seconds, sometimes in burst mode it locks up my cursor for 10 seconds and happens several times a minute when bad. freeze is accompanied by the usb connect/disconnect tone. the problem started randomly as i had not installed any new software, drivers or hardware. Also, a recent development is that when this happens the volume output in windows is halved. I enjoy online gaming and you can imagine how frustrating this can be while playing lol or mw3. currently running windows 7, mouse is a logitech mx518. mouse works fine on other pc's, not a hardware issue.
    please forum users, you are my only hope.

    i have browsed the internet and have found several people with what sounds like the same problem but no solutions.

    Try disabling your network driver under Device Manager temporarily and see if it works or not. In case if that does not work then it can be a case of BUFFER OVERFLOW for some of the processes, check that first and even if that does not work. Do a proper scan of your system with a good antivirus and if nothing works then re installing the OS would be your last option.

    Changing the mouse pointers to a non-'Aero' scheme (Windows Standard (large)) worked in my case.

    Before doing anything, take a look at how many programs you have open when your mouse freezes up. If you are running multiple programs at once and have limited RAM, this can be a major cause of mouse freezing.
