Mouse Cursor Freezing in Vista

Last response: in Windows Vista

I updated to Windows Vista Home Premium within the last week and am having trouble with my Logitech G5 Mouse. The mouse cursor will just freeze and will only move again after I hit a button on the keyboard (Microsoft Natural 4000). I have installed all the updated vista drivers from Logitech and have unistalled and reinstalled them three times. I have e-mailed Logitech with no response and spent over an hour on the phone with a Microsoft customer service rep. The issue still persists. The freezing is random and happens more when using the scroll wheel and when opening programs. I have tried using a wireless Microsoft Notebook mouse and experience the same issues. All of my other devices are updated to current Vista drivers. I have an EVGA 8800 GTX, P5N32-SLi Premium motherboard, E6700 CPU, 2GB Corsair RAM, and a Creative Fata1ty X-Fi sound card. I also have two 300GB Seagates in RAID 0. Any information on this would be great. I upgraded to Vista for Bioshock and Crysis, but looks like I have jumped the gun. No FPS pun intended.

Not sure what to do exactly. Help would be greatly appreciated!!

I've seen mouse problems in Vista when using a KVM switch or USB-to-PS/2 converter before, there may be an update (or perhaps fixed in the newest compatibility ones that aren't on Windows Update yet) to fix that particular problem. I figure if you tried two mouses to no avail, the common thing between them is the connection. If you don't use a KVM or converter, then I'd point to USB as the problem, and there are plenty of updates to fix USB problems. You can search for a Vista USB roll-up update which details the various fixes, and those you cannot get directly from Microsoft's site can be obtained through the Hotfixshare forum site.
