Mouse Cursor Freezes Constantly

Using a wireless or USB mouse with Windows 8, my mouse cursor freezes every few inches on the screen even when nearly no processes are running on my computer.

There is no difference with being in certain programs nor if all my processors are being used.

I've switched between wireless and wired and have plugged all USB devices into my monitors, docking station, and directly into the laptop.

Is this a new Windows 8 computer with Windows 8 pre-installed?  

Or is this a fully running Windows 7 computer that you upgraded?  

In either case, look for upgraded touch pad or like drivers from the manufacturer's web site. Also look for Chip Set and BIOS upgrades.

Check in clean boot mode.

Clean boot process

Start-type - msconfig- click on startup tab- click disable all...then click services tab- put a check on hide all microsoft services ...and then click disable all....click ok and then restart the computer in normal mode.

If everything works fine in clean boot then enable five startup items and services at a time to find the faulty software.
