well i seem to have this problem im having trouble addressing. ive changed my mouses polling rate to 1000 hz... works fine up to the logon screen. once logged on, it changes back to 125 hz, until i log off, then once again, at the logon screen, it seems to be 1000 hz again. idk if any running programs could be blocking it.

programs that constantly run are:
ATI Control Panel
IObit Security
Setpoint 6
Comodo Firewall
Avira Anti Virus

ive been messing with this [bleep] for 2 days now and i really hope to be put in the right direction to fixing this.

My advice is leave it at the 125hz that is the standard windows rate.
The mouse cursor is then updated every 8 milliseconds
To set the rate higher than the standard 125hz you will need to download one of the many suitable
programs. Suitable is in italics, because you must ensure they are.
You stand a risk of CPU overload, unless you have a suitable processor speed, and even motherboard damage.
UNLESS YOU KNOW the system will stand it LEAVE IT ALONE
Just in case, you need confirmation of my advice>
