Hey guys,

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.

Are you running more then one anti-virus scanner in a real-time protection never run more then one anti-virus software in a real-time protection if you do then your network and computer will slow down even your mouse. Also have you try reinstalling the Mouse driver.

Yes, I have updated my driver as well.  I have always had these 2 AV/AM programs running real-time protection at the same time with no issues.  This only started occurring recently.  The problem still occurs even when I have nothing open.  If I had a computer that was 10 years old with terrible specs, I would completely agree.  But as you can see, my machine should be able to handle a lot.

Again, I haven't had any issues prior to recently.  While this may be good practice, this doesn't apply to my issue.  If you are not going to contribute useful information, more than an article to promote/sell me Kaspersky AV, please refrain from giving advise.

I contributed but your to stupid to follow instructions like disabling one of the antivirus scanner and see if i'm wrong which i could be but again you know so much why asking for help if your not going to follow advice that every knowledgeable member will like me say to you don't run two antivirus program at same time. Only reason i give you the website link to Kaspersky because there is no way i will waste my time writing all that useful information in that website and one more thing i can't write very good english because its my second language so that's another reason i send you to the website.
