I have not had this problem for a while now, but consistently a few months ago, my laptop cursor would freeze in place toward the end of an MBAM threat scan. The rest of the computers functions would still work, I could type, right/left click, etc. Just the pointer would not move. It would unfreeze after the scan was finished. I should've asked about the problem then, but better late than never. Any idea what caused that? As it has stopped happening now, I would not think a hidden virus caused it, but I am a worrier, not an expert.
I have been running Windows 8.1. There seemed to be compatibility issues after a forced update, but through time, they went away as Windows kept releasing updates.
Thanks again, kind folks.
