While on line my courser will work great then randomly become ineffective when i click on anything. I noticed when i have this problem by clicking start menu a few maybe just once it then resolves its self. I have up to date AV and regularly scheduled maintenance. System has 6GB DDR3 RAM and a 1TB hard drive so the pc is not bogged down. My C: drive is only at about 10% capacity. Does any one know how i can resolve this annoyance?

Hello Shane, Just out of curiosity what type of mouse are you using, eg wireless, one which contains a Usb Port as it may be just hardware related.

What that probably means is that some software (possibly even a driver) is probably causing the problem. What you might want to do is this:

Open msconfig and choose selective startup (disable everything from loading) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. However, if the problem continues even with the first selective startup it's possible we're looking at a hardware related issue.

I instead chose to run CC Cleaner and install google chrome. After doing so and installing multiple new downloads I have not run into this problem nearly as often. I mention the downloads because you suggested using MS Configure to see if perhaps it was a download. It seems perhaps it may not because i have even more installments now and am not experiencing the problem. The reason i question if the problem is truly fixed is because it seems to come and go. I am also stumped as to why the start menu being clicked seems to refresh my system? It is difficult to find the solution using the method you describe because this error is not a constant. It is more prevelent day- x than it will be on day- y and i am not sure when it will rear its ugly head!!!!! Do you know why clicking the start menu puts the system back on track? I have run all my system security and performance programs and they have found nothing.

I said nothing about downloads. If you wish to follow the (admittedly tedious) method I suggested above, I'm sure it will help you identify the process causing the problem. However, it is your system and certainly your option to choose whether or not to follow the instructions.

I thought u were refering to start up programs, some of which are downloads like yahoo messenger or other widgets. The new browser seems to have helped. Thank you for the advice i will follow the directions when i get the time and i will post my findings.

Thank you bleepin madman for the neat snapshot info will do once i am back on home PC. :clapping:
