    Hey Tempers,

    I recently upgraded my rig from AMD to Intel. After upgrading, everything worked fine except for the mouse.
    The cursor keeps freezing about every ~2-3 seconds, for about ~2-3 seconds. This makes it basically impossible to properly use my computer.
    The mouse works just fine on my Intel laptop.

    I've already tried a few things, including:

    Replugging the mouse
    Plugging the mouse into another USB 2.0/3.0 port.
    Rebooting
    Re-installing drivers
    Using Windows generic HID mouse driver thingy

    Old specs:

    AMD Athlon 860k x4
    MSI Gtx 970
    MSI Military Class 4 A78M-E45
    16 Gigs of Kingston DDR3
    Samsung 840 EVO SSD (128 GB)
    Some generic 500 GB HDD

    New Specs:

    Intel i3-6100 (Yep, an i3. It's really good for gaming though)
    MSI Gtx 970
    MSI B15 Bazooka
    8 Gigs of XFury DDR4
    Samsung 840 EVO SSD (128 GB)
    Some generic 500 GB HDD

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think you might have to reformat windows, I've seen many cases of peripherals misbehaving after some important hardware change

    I know you may have done this already, but I did a quick google search.
    Perhaps this might fix it?

    Hiya.
    I hadn't done this yet, but unfortunately this didn't fix my issue.

    Is it all mice or just that one?

    With that said I don't usually advocate reformatting but if you are going to swap motherboard and CPU to an entirely different class of them then it is something worth doing.

    Such a drastic hardware change (controllers for sata, usb, memory, sound, etc.) should be followed by a complete windows reinstall. Otherwise you will have sporadic problems and several headaches.

    I've reformatted Windows and it's still happening.

    Alright, seeing as reinstalling windows doesn't help, could it perhaps be a hardware related issue?

    Is it possible you damaged some USB headers or something?

    I'm always extra careful when building that I don't accidentally bump something, so I don't think so.

    Then can you try and see if the same problem persists with different OSes like Ubuntu or Puppy Linux? If it does, it's a HW problem for sure, if it doesn't, I guess it's on the software end only.

    I think it might've been a virus related issue. I ran HitmanPro, AdwCleaner and Norton Power eraser and that seems to have fixed the issue. Thanks to all :)
