Mouse work, but cursor on the screen won't follow. it just stay at one place.

This problem usually occur when I read/write(download) files to one of my secondary hard drive (300gb, 127gb free).

Usually the mouse movement will shatter (not smooth, stop and go) before the cursor go dead, while I read/write to that specific hard drive, and cpu running 100%.

The problem will fix itself after I restart the computer.

If i just surf web/email/office work on the desktop, mouse will work fine for days. just when I access that hard drive, the mouse problem occur.

Could it be virus? worms? or things like that.

Hi hon423...

The next time you download like that and the CPU goes to 100%, take a look in Task Manager and see what's pushing the CPU so hard.

Download and run WinAudit. Save a log as a PDF file and Attach it here for me.

fixed the problems... it's adware/virus in the hard drive.

Thanks for the (Avast Antivirus) link in your signature .
