Mouse pauses...

    My mouse pauses/freezes for a second or so when moving it sometimes, how
    can I stop it doing this, and have it move smoothly around the screen
    like it used to?

    I've occasionally seen strange mouse cursor behavior on some websites with
    java script issues. Presumably you are seeing this elsewhere as well.

    Could be the mouse battery, if your mouse uses batteries.

    Could be system resources slowing down your computer.

    How long since you ran Disk Cleanup?
    Copy and paste %SystemRoot%\system32\cleanmgr.exe
    to Start > Run edit box before clicking OK.

    Finally, I would select the tab named PERFORMANCE in the Task Manager to
    check your CPU usage.

    If it's a wireless mouse it's batteries might go dead soon...

    Good luck with that ! ;)

    Otherwise it might be a virus scanning program locking up the processor ! ;)

    Bye,

    1: Right-click "My Computer", then "Properties".
    2: Choose the "Advanced" tab. Under "Performance" click "Settings".
    3: In the Performance Options window, click > Advanced.
    4: Virtual memory, click on > Change.
    5: Make sure you are in "C" drive & select > System managed size.
    6: Click on > Set & then OK.
    7: Continue clicking OK, to close down the pages.
    8: Reboot & check again to make sure you have done it right & the
    settings have stuck.
