Could you try disconnect internet and try MS word again to see what happen?
Coud you reboot your window  and then go to system safe mode and try
MS word to see what happen? (that I'm not sure you can run MS word at safe mode or not )

Up to this memont based on your limited information, it is hard to tell that
is related to virsu or others

Since you describe that the problem not only occours in Word, but in your browser as well, I think this may either be a ressource problem or some kind of malware on your machine.

Try disabling/stopping all Software that runs on the machine and check whether or not your system is busy. This is normally shown in Taskmanager - if your CPU is used at 100%, it may explain why it seems to freeze your cursor. (Even short spikes on 100% can be an indicator...)

If its not a ressource problem, your machine might be infected with malware. Please update and scan your machine completely (depending on your AntiVirus Software you can do an offline-Scan as well.)

Hi Thank all of you for your reply. @liorkr, i tried it, but it did not work.
@Smighty, the CPU utility is not high, maybe some virus problem
@ duncanb7, so far, i think your way is right. i need to try and wait for a while after shutting down some software.
