Mouse freezing up

November 5, 2009 at 23:17:42
Specs: Windows XP
My mouse will freeze up, a box with icon appears in the middle of the screen for a split second then disappears (which will usually result in minimized programs opening or the volume on my music player just going to max and other weird things)then my mouse will work again. This happens every few minutes to a few times every minute. I do not recognize the icons and they disappear to quick to identify them. I have run many different kinds of virus and malware scans and nothing shows up. This is getting extremely frustrating. Can anyone help?

Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.
