I have been having an issue recently with my mouse/keyboard staggering a lot with significant noise from my computer like something is running. I checked resources but everything is minimal. I am running Windows 8.1 Pro. I have a Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard which I replaced the batteries in the mouse thinking they could be dying, but that didn't work. The Keyboard is a solar charging keyboard and has good battery.
I did notice today, but have not noticed before that when this was happening, the windows maintenance was running. I stopped it, and it took a while to get the mouse back to normal again. Don't know if this is a coincidence or not.
My computer has a 4ghz 8 core amd fx processor and 32 gb of ram. The skipping or staggering is happening randomly, sometimes at idle, sometimes when putting slight load. But there is no way I do anything that will stress my specs out to cause staggering which leads me to believe that it has to be some type of infection.
Can someone walk me through a process to find out? I have Avast, Malwarebytes, and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit running for protection. I ran Malwarebytes and Avast and didn't find anything, which doesn't surprise me. I realize that no program is full proof and each have their strengths and weaknesses so I am sure I am still vulnerable somewhere. I also realize a clean install is probably going to be the best solution, but it is a p-i-t-a to reinstall everything so if I can avoid that, that would be ideal. Thanks in advance for your help and support.
