I have read and re-read the sticky at the top of the page and have performed numerous processes before making this last effort post. For some reason, my mouse cursor after a few minutes of use will freeze up on my screen. The icon will not move, however, if I were to pull the mouse down and to the left and click, the start menu would pop up. I hope I'm explaining clear enough the situation. The actual cursor itslef does not move, however, I can still move and use the mouse, but I cannot see where I am moving it to, I just have to guess where it is on the screen and click. While the cursor is frozen in its one position, the icon changes in accordance to where the real arrow is on the screen (text cursor over a text input area, finger pointer when I'm over a link, etc.). I've read a few boards including this one, and I've run every possible antivirus, Lavasoft, S&D possible, all in safe mode. I ran hijack this and tried deleting a few suggested things. I thought it had solved the problem since after the next reboot, in normal mode, I was set for 3-4 hrs with a good mouse, but then it froze again, and does now everytime within its first few minutes. I should also mention that I have not expereinced any problems with the mouse in safe mode. If anyone can help me, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
