My mouse i s giving me a real problem. At times the mouse will "Freeze" and after a while it will move again. The problem seems to be getting worse each day.
It doesn't seem to matter what I am doing, on/off line..... inter explorer/foxfire.. Email or just playing solitaire.
Windows xp, fairly new hp lintel, 1gig memory....
Any help will be appreciated.
Jim :)

Hi Jim,

Anytime i've seen this happen before is because there is a program currently hogging your resources or you don't have enough resources for what your doing/running.

Try opening your task manager and sorting by cpu usage. Then use your computer like you normally would. When your mouse sticks, look at the task manager and see if a program is using a lot of cpu at that point.
