Okay, so I'm really close to losing my mind now. This problem first made itself apparent when I go into the ESO beta weekend January 18. I experienced a fair amount of lag and my inputs would seem to... save up with no response, then register a few moments later. Just seemed like lag. But since then, what happens is randomly while in a game, browsing the internet, watching a movie, any time at all, my mouse will click automatically and my keyboard seems to phantom keypresses, generally the WASD buttons. It lasts about 5-10 minutes and will occur maybe five times daily. I've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, tried multiple keyboards and mice, used different ports, this seems to be either a motherboard problem or a software problem, it's not the input devices themselves. Using 'sfc /scannow' gave me no integrity violations.

 

I'm curious if anybody has any advice - refresh windows seemed like a good idea but I get the response Windows is missing media files (or something similar) and requires the installation disc/USB. I'm willing to do a full reinstalltion, but hesitant because I'm sure there is a quicker fix than that.

 

Anyone else had this problem?

Thanks, I've tried refresh, requires you to make a restore USB (or something similar, cant recall the wording.) Even with the USB it decided to tell me it's missing files =/

Restore is the first step to try, Refresh the second and third is a Reset.
