Default mouse lockup for 1.7sec every 4min

mouse lockup for 1.7sec every 4min

and at random times it will click start on the bottom, file button on browser, close confirmation of browser window, misc windows and everything just pop up all by itself.... rapidly popping like machine gun. i tried unplug/replug mouse and it stop.


if all of these cause by melfunction mouse.... then why when i tried using other mouse and it still act the same?

posible that the mouse hole on the computer is busted somehow? or any posibility? any ideA?

cause im getting tired of this mouse lockup every 4min for 1.7sec

Sounds like it could be a virus or something. Try ubuntu, this will rule out OS, driver and virus issues, leaving only the possibility of a hardware problem.

Probably something eating up cpu cycles every 4 minutes, check task manager when it happens to see what is eating up the CPU time.

Update windows.

Update drivers for all hardware

MAlicious software scans (Malwarebytes spybot)

Decrease amount of runnning processes using msconfig.

Run CCleaner and a disk defrag.

im using unbuntu right now. its been 9min and so far so smooth. no lockups. mouse smoothness. but i must experience it more than 12 hours to know for sure.

so what if its confirm that using unbuntu and the mouse lockup problem eliminated?

Both good suggestions. Exclude malicious software scans at your own risk if you really don't think that is the problem.
