I had the weirdest problem start out of the blue today. I have played WoW since it came out and was playing Age of Conan yesterday perfectly fine about 50fps as usual but today no matter what game I play, whenever I move the mouse, it lags. Testing it out in Age of Conan and WoW, if i only play with the keyboard there is no lag, if I move the mouse the screen pretty much freezes until it stops moving. It is the weirdest problem I have ever encountered. I tried uninstalling Logitech Setpoint, updating drivers, checked video/sound drivers, everything. I had not changed anything at all and this just started happening out of no where and if I do not move the mouse there is no problem. I have even tried a different crappy plug and play usb mouse and I encountered the same problem.
PLEASE HELP!!! If anyone has any suggestions to what it might be I would greatly appreciate it
The mouse is a Logitech G5 and my computer specs are as follows
AMD Phenom 9550
Windows XP pro x64
Nvidia Geforce 8800gts
soundblaster audigy 4 sound card

for what it is worth i use only logitech ratz and i never load their drivers and my ratz are wireless,both of them.and i do fps gamez.
see if you can [both of you] get a copy of your uninstaller pro 2006,it can check for snafu'd installations and fix same,,highly recommended..
and have you defragged lately.
you both have decent systems so it looks like a snafu somewhere in the file system,try not using the drivesz,unless you have software that uses/needz certain mouse functions..
I had the same problem. I was originally on an XP/ATI Radeon box which worked flawlessly for GRAW2/COD4/WoW, then i got a new box Vista/Nvidia and then everything went to sh#t. Non-stop mouse lag on any game i played.
First i was told it was my wireless mouse. New drivers and even switching to a corded mouse didnt work.
Then tried numerous video drivers and still no luck. Tried tweaking my card but that only limited the lag slightly.
Then i was told it was a vista problem. never found the fix for this going the vista route. So as an experiment, i pulled my ATI card from the dell box and replaced the nvidia with it and guess what. NO LAG.
ATI ran just as it did on my old box, flawlessly. Go figure! Anyways ive seen numerous posts about nvidia mouse lag issues and still no updated drivers for it. They say its a vista problem. either way, i know that my ATI works fine...
Hope you have better luck with your problem.....my 2cents....
cant u just use a restore point from just before the problem started ... ?? Can Save from a lot of problems those handy restore points hehe ... ultimately ... make a full reinstall of ur system ... it always solves my problems when it tried everything
