    Did you try another mouse to see if the same thing happens?
    There could be many reasons why it freezes, but first you should ckeck if it a hardware problem and then if it is a software problem.

    Try uninstalling the mouse drivers (device manager). After you do that, reboot and windows should reload them. Tell me if it works.

    Shut Down normally. Unplug the mouse, Unplug the power cord from mains, hold the power button in for 30 secs.

    reconnect the mouse and power, start your system and see if that cures the porblem.
