  1. I have just bought a new mouse for my computer, its a microsoft optical wheel mouse. It seems to work fine on the desktop but when i get into a game such as CS it seems to freeze in places, particually when im aiming. It will move fine but when i try and aim at someone sometimes the mouse wont move as if its kinda frozen, its hard to explain but if any of you have any ideas why this might be would be very much appreciated!

    The "lag" you are referring to is fairly common in lower priced optical mice. what model do you have and what kind of surface are you using it on?

    your lag is probably cuased by the surface you are using it on. although optical mice are touted as being able to be used without a mouse pad they still function best and smoothest when used with a mouse pad that is made for optical mice. ( which is almost ALL mouse pads made these days.)
