Game freezes when mouse moves

  1. This is a weird problem. Yesterday everything was working fine. I haven't installed or uninstalled anything.

    Today, when I play Command and Conquer Generals or Battlefield 2, whenever I am moving the mouse, the game freezes completely. If I am not moving the mouse, the game seems to be just fine.

    I have tried the following:

    Updated to the latest driver for my mouse (Logitech G5).
    Updated to the latest driver for my graphics card (GeForce 6800).
    Ran anti-virus software.
    Ran scandisk, ad-aware, and Spybot Search and Destroy.
    I defragged my computer.
    I re-installed directx.
    I re-installed the game Generals.
    I have rebooted many times.
    I have monitored the GPU temperature (45 degrees).

    I am running out of ideas....can anyone help?

    Is there alot of important info on your computer, or things that will take a while to load back on, because as a last resort you could always reformat.

    I'm really hoping to avoid that...

    You could always try and run a RAM Scan (yes which will test your ram) or you could always try a system restore point if you make them? Other than that only thing i can say is uninstall the games and then reinstall them one by one.?!
