Well, I'm pretty sure this was cause by spyware in some way. My cursor sticks after I let it sit for a few seconds.
Here's exactly what happens:
After letting my mouse sit idle for 20-30 seconds when I go to move my mouse again the cursor sticks for a short period of time. It's only between 1-5 seconds. If I keep my cursor moving regularly this problem doesn't occur.
This problem persists all the time even when running games like Battlefield 2 the same stickyness persists.

I'v scanned my computer with spybot s&d, Ad-Aware, and AVG.
I'm running XP Media Center Edition.

By the way. This is an optical mouse, and I have tried changing to a different mouse of same make and model with no success. I am using just a smooth grey mousepad. This is the same pad I have used since I bought the computer, so it isn't anything to do with the surface.

Can someone help me fix this please?
