Usually I can solve my computer problems, but I am at a real loss.
This started up just Wednesday. At first I thought my mouse was freezing, but I'm unable to alt+tab or use the windows key while the freezing occurs. It happens for about 10 seconds and then lets back up, and then will freeze again soon after.
When this starts to happen, the cursor will hang on whichever it was last, not returning to the default arrow unless I hover over something that turns it back into an arrow. (This part is kind of hard to explain.)
My computer is relatively new, just being built a few months ago. It has 16gb Ram so I know that shouldn't be the issue.
Other specs that may be necessary:
Processor: Intel Core i5-3570k CPU @ 3.40GHz
Windows 7 Pro running Service pack 1
