The title says it all.

 

Things I did to try to stop it:

 

Reinstall Mouse Drivers

Scanned with over 5 anti viruses

Scanned 10+ times

Check registry (No problems)

Cleaned storage

 

None of those tasks worked for me.

If you completely remove the device (through the device manager) and then use your keyboard shortcuts to reboot does the problem continue when it is using the Windows driver?

So just to confirm, you're running on the Windows driver now?

 

Please start your task manager and have a look at the running processes. Which one jumps when you move the mouse?

Mainly the explorer.exe jumps up but isn't that normal?

Also "System Idle Process" uses alot of CPU too. The

explorer.exe goes to about 9-10 each time in CPU usuage.

Nah, explorer shouldn't be eating anywhere near that amount of cpu. There may be some damaged system files.

 

Please enter

sfc /scannow

from an administrative command prompt.

 

What results does that return?

Does the issue also occur in safe mode? Have you tried using a different mouse?

If you open another program and move the mouse over that do the spikes occur in that program? (rather than just moving the mouse over the desktop which would point at explorer)

So you watched the task manager and saw the spikes in the other program? (sorry to be so specific, but it wasn't 100% clear how you perceived the problem)

 

Please check safe mode, that will eliminate or confirm some possibilities.

 

And also, is it a laptop or a tower?
