Intermittent Mouse Freezes

Hello. I've been having a problem lately with my mouse. The cursor just freezes in position for a random amount of time, either 3-4 seconds or it'll freeze completely and I'm forced to restart. It is a PS2 compatible mouse.

My system specs are top of the line, with a gig of ram.
I tried all that I can think of.
-Emptied temp internet folders
-Tamed hardware acceleration
-Checked mouse drivers
-Tried another mouse
-Defragged PC
-Downloaded new nvidia drivers
-Checked for a yellow sign on mouse

Here are the programs i'm running in the background:
WSCNTFY.EXE
ALG.EXE
TASKMGR.EXE
ashWebSv.exe
ashMaiSv.exe
point32.exe
RUNDLL32.EXE
DkService.exe
ashDisp.exe
tfswctrl.exe
realplay.exe
DVDLauncher.exe
IntelMEM.exe
wdfmgr.exe
jusched.exe
smax4pnp.exe
EXPLORER.EXE
aswUpdSv.exe
SDMCP.exe
SPOOLSV.EXE
ashServ.exe
SVCHOST.EXE
LSASS.EXE
SERVICES.EXE
WINLOGON.EXE
CSRSS.EXE
SMSS.EXE
WRSSSDK.EXE
WRSSSDK.exe
nvsvc32.exe
IAANTmon.exe

Those are the processes running in task manager. Any help is appreciated!!

  1. Try a USB mouse.

    The only times I've seen this problem is from spyware. Download Microsoft's anti-spyware program or spybot search & destroy. Run those, see what they find.

    Also looks like you might be running a web server or something in the background?

    What all do you have running on your PC that you are aware of?
  2. google each one of the processes and see if anything suspicious turns on.

    Here's some free stuff that can help you if it's a virus, malware etc.
