I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Win 10 Prof. I use a Logitech gaming mouse G900 for regular mousing and photography editing. It has a tilt wheel left and right which I've assigned to copy and paste. This works fine. However, when I use the scroll wheel to scroll, it often acts as if it is the tilt wheel in the regular HID mouse settings in Win 10. Therefore it will alter an entry I made on a website instead of just scrolling the page.

For example, if I enter the #2 in box when placing an order, and then scroll up or down the page, it ends up changing the number I just entered. Hope this is clear?

Control Panel/Mouse/mouse properties/wheel tab - Vertical Properties no problem. Horizontal Properties setting is used when entering a number into a fill-in box on a website even though I'm actually just using normal vertical scrolling.

I would like to convince Win 10 mouse properties to let me set horizontal properties to 0 or convince it that there is no tilt wheel, when in fact there is. I'm imagining I could do this in the registry but I don't know where to go. Or, if anyone has another suggestion, that would be great too.



Answer:Mouse Properties Interfere with Logitech Gaming Mouse Settings

Hi mlg

I think I understand what is happening and I think it is normal. When you've typed in a boxed the focus is in that box. So when you scroll it thinks you want to scroll in that box. You have to tell the form you are finished with that box.

So just before you scroll, click outside the box, once, to move the focus back to the overall form. Then use wheel.

I may not be understanding the issue 100%. Just ignore if I'm not understanding.

Hi there. Please help me and save me from insanity ;]

I have a Perixx Mx2000 Gaming mouse.

Problem is, I cant bind the extra buttons at all as it is only recognised as a HID Compatible Mouse.

When I try run the Perixx setup program for the mouse, I get the following message-

Found MingGuan Gaming Mouse already installed, try delete the drivers, reboot the pc and try again.
Well I have tried removing the driver, I have tried removing the mouse. Even with no mouse installed, I get the same message when I try run the setup program and the mouse is always recgonised as just a HID Compatible mouse.

I have no idea what 'minGuan' gaming mouse is, when I search for the term, lots of 'articles' show up on google, just nonsense that people appear to have written to receive the link when the term is searched for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was thinking of getting a used death adder off ebay. Are their any new mice for 30$ as good as a death adder? With 2 side buttons?

I was looking on newegg but most mice don't tell you their response time, death adder has 1 ms. idk it seems like if I am not buying razor I am gettting crap.

How about 60$?

Answer:Gaming mouse for $30?

A lot of razer mice are pretty junkie to be honest.
There are many deathadder and razer fakes in general on ebay, so look into it, it's very common (for new ones). Obviously used ones could just as well be fake, and the seller may not even know it.
The fakes are not bad though I hear.

Most mice can support a polling rate of 1000hz.

Some good mice with good sensors in that price range are Razer Abyssus, Logitech G100s, Roccat Savu, Zowie Mico, and CM Storm Spawn.
Most of those mice use the Avago 3090 with a fairly well implemented ROM AFAIK, but I don't have any myself except the Abyssus.
AFAIK the polling rate on all these mice can be set to 1000hz except the G100s, which is 500hz max.

Sorry there aren't a lot of side buttons available at $30, but the mice I listed above have top performing sensors for a good price.

Question: Gaming Mouse?

Has anyone got any suggestions for a cheapish gaming mouse?

I play MMORPGs mainly (WoW mostly) so Macros buttons are needed. However, I don't need hundreds of them. 4 or 5 should do. If glow colour can be taken into consideration neon blue would match my keyboard. Also, a comfortable design is an advantage.

I would like to only spend £30-40 so Im aware I can not get the best mouse on the market.

Does any body know of any mice that roughly fit my criteria?

Has anyone tried a gaming mouse? The claim is that better resolution of the optical sensor is supposed to give better response time?
"The Logitech MX optical engine is now even better. High resolution is combined with high frame rates to deliver superior performance. This revolutionary 800-dpi sensor now captures an incredible 5.8 megapixels every second. Able to track up to 15 G's of acceleration, you get instant response to your fastest movements."
I've never had a problem with my mouse, but I've just seen these things popping up recently and wondered if there was any advantage to them. I wouldn't think an enhanced sensor would give me any help over a few nanoseconds.

My mouse just died so I need a new one, but I have no clue what mouse to get. I came of a Gigabyte GM-M6800 so every gaming mouse will be an improvement. I have fairly large hands so a big mouse would be a big plus. I did some research and the roccat kone XTD, cyborg R.A.T 7 and the Razer Lachesis are nice sized mice. But I have no clue which one I should get and which is the most durable.
Help is appreciated.

Answer:Which mouse is the best for gaming?

Well, I personally like Logitech. But I have never had a true gaming mouse, but I am planning on building a new PC and have been researching peripherals for the past few months. No luck with a keyboard, but for the mouse I decided that I wanted to get the Razer Deathadder 2013. I would recommend a Logitech G500s, but reviewers say that it isnt much of an improvement over the original G500. The Deathadder 2013 has a braided chord, which makes it more durable. But it isnt a laser mouse. But that isnt a big deal since its 4G sensor is plenty good. Make sure you get the 2013 version, since the older version hasnt been updated since 2006.

I recently bought an ASUS G75 gaming notebook, which is great, and I'm currently using a Logitech M510 usb wireless mouse. I play mostly FPS and it has enough buttons for me, the problem is aiming accuracy when shooting, especially at moving targets. I've tried playing around with the sensitivity, turning smoothing on and off, but it doesn't seem to help. (Maybe I'm just uncoordinated.)

Would a gaming mouse help with this kind of issue? If so, I'd appreciate some recommendations. I'd definitely prefer wireless, especially bluetooth, since the G75 has that built-in. I don't mind paying up if it's a good product and will solve my movement/accuracy issues. Thanks much.

Question: Gaming Mouse

Hey all.

I know this particular forum is for hardware "troubleshooting", and not that I have "problem", but just kinda figured this was the best forum to come to out of all the others with what I have to ask.

It has to do with pc gaming, but on these boards here on this site, the actual forum of PC Gaming seems more geared towards the games themselves rather than a piece of a mouse!!!!

I do a fair amount of pc gaming which includes action first-person shooters, and I'll be getting a gaming keyboard, so, figured I'd go with the whole package and look into a gaming mouse, too.

When I googled some searches on "best gaming mouse", a couple of the name brands that popped up were "Logitech" and "Razer". I've heard of both of these brands (and way in the past I had a "standard" Logitech mouse). For years I've been using various Microsoft mice, and recently wireless, optical ones with that ergonomic design.

I guess what surprised me on my searches with the Logitech and Razer results was that the mice themselves were "wired" and not wireless. I know they say you should never assume, but I had assumed that gaming mice would want to lend themselves to freedom of movement, so I thought my results from my search would have me looking at wireless mice.

On some of my search results there were some wireless gaming mice, but a fair amount (majority) were wired mice.

What do you thin... Read more

Answer:Gaming Mouse

I have a Razer Krait and I love it.

Originally, I bought the Krait because it's best for RTS, but now I'm more into FPS, so you should choose which ever mouse fits your style.

The reason most gaming mice are wired is because they are more precise than wireless mice are. There will never be any instances of you blaming a mouse skip for getting killed with a wire mouse :P

Answer:Gaming Mouse under $50

Changing your mouse is sort of like applying a band-aid when a tourniquet is needed. The tendons that are used to move your wrist go through little sheaths when they move. Repeated use can inflame the tendons and make them rub up against that sheath rather than gliding through it. You need to get that inflammation down. Changing to a different mouse may sort of help by altering angles in your wrist, but not much since they all have the same basic design.

You should consider one of those wrist rest mouse pads and taking some NSAIDs. Or learn to use a trackball.

RTR-720 for the site. Visit it first if you want a good concept of this review!

I've owned many gaming mice starting with the Boomslang in 2000 ('99?) which was a ball mouse. Optical gave a very keen edge on ball mice due to the lack of the possible situation of the mouse ball sticking from dirt and mechanism cleaning, more so the former. Nothing was more irritating when your crosshair wouldn't move all the way to your target due to a clog from lint. Optical was a clear choice for this remedy but had nothing on a 2000dpi Boomslang ball mouse, as long as you kept it clean. Now we have laser mice reaching up to 2600dpi and above. The RTR-720 I am reviewing has a 1600dpi cap.

1600dpi is a very high resolution for a mouse for First Person Shooters. In fact 900dpi is good using an in-game stock pointer setting, generally speaking. What I like to do is set my mouse DPI at it's highest setting and tweak the pointer speed settings in the game that way I gain the smoothest tracking. Theoretically this should apply where you get the smoothest tracking available but I am unsure if a medium setting on a mouse with a medium setting ingame would give the same results.

Question: Gaming Mouse?

Hi, All!

I'm thinking about a new mouse. I'm looking for better accuracy, but also I'd like to free myselft of getting the cord stuck in the middle of gaming. I was also thinking about going optical, so no more stumbling over the inevitable pretzel crumbs on my mouse pad.

So, a wireless optical mouse? Any good for gaming, or am I asking for trouble?

I''ve heard not so nice things about optical mice, re accuracy. Is this true?



Answer:Gaming Mouse?

O own both a Logitech optical mouse(corded) and an Intellimouse explorer(cordless) and can't tell a difference in the function of them. The Intellimouse was almost twice the price but it is cordless and I've had no problems out of it. Some people do seem to dislike the Logitec mouse though and claim it doesn't work right in XP, but I had no problems with it, I just decided I wanted the cordless and went with the Intellimouse. As for gaming, I have used both and neither have given any trouble. I did have a little trouble to begin with until I got rid of my mouse pad because it had a glossy surface, I guess it was reflective enough to interfer with the sensor. I now use an old dull grey pad because my desk is also shiny.

Question: Gaming mouse help

Recently I bought a RedDragon lava wolf gaming mouse to help make Lineage 2 a little easier. The mouse is great I love it, only issue I have and i'm hoping someone here can help is it came with utterly no instructions on how to run the software. I checked the box and the net and just..nothing.

The mouse comes with two modes, 5 profiles each. I set up the first set of profiles easily (though the macro function on my summoner does not like to work) When I switched over to the second mode to set up for the high rate server i play it reverted the original mode to be identical. I was under the impression that mode 2 meant completely different profiles.. other wise..what the point?

On the bottom of the mouse as well there is a way of switching the modes with out having to open the program. That has not worked once.

What are the differences/benefits to getting a gaming mouse (ie, Logitech G3, G5, etc.) versus a regular optical mouse or a trackball mouse (like the Logitech TrackMan Wheel)? What kinds of games benefit from a gaming mouse? Is it worth the extra $$ to get a gaming mouse?

Hey, right now I'm looking for a gaming mouse, and a good mouse pad. My price range is about $1-75 for the mouse, and I haven't really decided what my budget will be for the mouse pad. Any suggestions on what I should get? By the way, I will be using this mouse to play mostly first person shooters, and I would prefer a wired mouse over a wireless one.

Answer:New Gaming Mouse and Mousepad


I have a G7 which is the same as a G5 but wireless. I love it, it has 2interchangeable lithium ion batteries with nice dock that has usb port on it. I dont think they sell them anymore though and most gamers prefer corded mouse, so If I had a corded mouse I would go for the G5 100%. I have never read a bad review of it and it is a great 2000 dpi mouse with good software for settings and tons of customizable options. Go with that, you won't regret it. On logitech it says 99 bucks, I see it all the time for 65-80, it's worth it.,en

Hi everyone,
I recently bought a razer lachesis (two actually) and I've been hearing reports that cloth mouse pads are too soft and allow for unwanted cursor movements during gameplay.
For the sake of my awp and scout kills, it seems I'm going to have to go with a plastic or metal pad. Can anyone suggest a good plastic/metal pad? Preferably under $30

Also, if anyone has the razer lachesis, would you mind telling me how it preforms on your pad?

And sorry if this post should be placed elsewhere. Maybe under PC gaming section?

Having just got a new laptop, with decent gaming capabilities, I want to get a mouse for gaming. Whilst I would be getting it for other members of the familly, I want to be able to give it a go, myself (a complete beginner).
What I want is something of decent quality, with some programability, but not something with "500" buttons, I wouldn't be able to use, or need an electronics degree to set up. The ability to actually use it as a MOUSE, would be handy. I don't want to spend a fortune, but don't want to get "cheap and nasty", that's likely to break in five minutes.

Answer:Gaming mouse for beginner

As you do not mention what you would like to spend it is difficult to suggest any particular mouse. I am a massive gamer and and find that I have never used the buttons that come with some mice so tend to buy a decent laser or optical mouse.

I bought a new razor gaming mouse and for some reason it will not work, any ideas?

I removed my old mouse, plugged in the new one in a USB port and almost nothing, the only button that works is left click.
I managed to install the CD that came with the mouse using the keyboard but still nothing. Restarted the computer and still nothing. The lights on the side of the mouse that I think should light up red dont light up at all

Is it fooked??

Answer:new gaming mouse problem

1. plug the mouse connection in the mouse port instead of the USB.
2. check ur mouse on any of ur friends' computer. if it still shows problems, then its probably "fooked". then get it replaced.

Hey everyone,

So really ever since the end of the old fashion "ball" mice (or whatever they're technically called) I haven't ever really used a mouse pad. However, now that I am gaming a lot more and doing it primarily on a PC I think it would be a good idea to get one. Obviously though, since I haven't used one since the good ole' days I figured I'd get some suggestions from some of the other gamers out there.

First, I primarily play MMOs, if that makes any kind of difference in the type of pad I should be looking for.

Second, there are the hard and soft versions out nowadays what do you prefer and why? What are the differences between the two?

Third, do any of you have the mouse pads with wrist rests/pads? Do they actually add any comfort for you? I feel like it might just get in the way but would like to hear from any of you that might have a version with one.

Other than that if there is anything else worth noting please let me know. Suggestions are definitely welcome.


Answer:Gaming Mouse Pad Help/Suggestions?

I use this one: - Mionix Propus 380 Gaming Mouse Pad

It is a combo of hard and soft. The mat is flexible but not foldable. The surface is solid and not cloth. The underside is rubber (or something very close) so it has a touch of give and does not move. Plus the size is about right... not tooo small and not too big. And you can't beat it for $20.

I used to use a Razer eXactMat. They no longer make that one, but I think they do a new version in white, but it is made of plastic instead of aluminum. Hmmm... NewEgg has the white one, but Razer's site has a black one (for $8 more). - RAZER Vespula Dual Sided Gaming Mouse Mat
Razer Vespula - Gaming Mouse Pad | Razer Online Store

I prefer a rigid mat. I guess it is personal preference, though.

I can't seem to use a wrist rest with a mouse. I had one with my eXactMat that I used for a couple of days and then tossed in the closet.

I went through a lot of research a ways back on this subject before I bought the eXactMat and have now moved to the Propus 380.

Theres more expensive versions of it, but the features they offer are not that important to me.
I like the fact it has a aluminum base, and wieghts if I want to make it heavier.

So Im curious if anyone has one, or any experience with it can give a bit of persional input.

The other I was looking into was: - Microsoft SideWinder X8 Black 12 Buttons Tilt Wheel 2.4GHz Wireless 4000 dpi Gaming Mouse

Hi, I have been playing some games on my macbook pro and periodically during the game, my mouse lags. It doesn't stop, it just lags. I tried this on my mac and with it running on windows 7 bootcamp . The same problem occured. I then tried using different mouses and even turning the game settings down to minimum ( by then the game was running at 60fps) and still the problem persisted.
I have no idea how to fix this so please help.

Also, I have noticed that when the mouse lags, actions in the game that require me to hold the mouse button only work for around half a second before it thinks i let go of the button. Though that might help, thanks in advance.

Hey guys,
I'm dying to be able to install my drivers for this mouse, but no matter what i do i can't seem to get the drivers to work.

I've tried installing the drivers then connecting the mouse (as instructed in the instructions).

I've tried installing the drivers while the mouse is connected.

I've tried v1.0 of the drivers.

I've tried v2.0 of the drivers.

But none work. I can't even get the firmware on the mouse updated cause apparently when using the newer firmware the new drivers work with it fine.

Also my other problem is it double clicks when i single click, no matter how low the double click speed is set in my settings. Which is driving me insane.

Any help would be appreciated guys.

I play quite a few games, such as: SWTOR, Call of Duty series, World of Warcraft, DC Universe, SWG, etc...

Basically, I play games where i control a character.

At times, randomly, my mouse will jump while I'm playing the game.

What I mean is, I'm walking forward with my game. I could be walking towards my next quest, or looking straight ahead and getting ready for a headset in CoD.

Then, suddenly, I see myself looking down at the ground, or the sky, or even doing a complete 180, even though I didn't move my mouse in that direction.

It happens randomly. It doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes, it'll go an hour without doing it. Sometimes, it'll go a few hours without doing it.

It only happens sometimes, but it's quite annoying. I don't notice if it happens on my desktop, or when I'm browsing the internet. I don't pay much attention to the pointer, except of course in FPS games. I just notice it inside games, cause my character's view suddenly changes by itself.

I have heard on here that CRT monitors better for gaming. Any opinions?Thanks.

Answer:Mouse for gaming & monitor.

I would go for CRT,just my own preferance,others may disagree,wouldnt go for anything smaller than 17" screen,19" or bigger if you can get one,as for the mouse i would stick with a ps2 mouse and go for a optical one rather than one with a mouse ball lots better for gaming and no messy mouse ball to clean,also go for one with a scroll wheel,invalubale to gamers,the button number doesnt much matter as most games nowdays use the keyboard pretty much for every think so a 2 button optical mouse with scroll wheeel should suit ok.

hello im thinking about getting a new gaming keyboard / mouse , as ive heard they are a big difference over regular mice / keyboards, my current mouse a Logitech LX3 Optical Mouse, and my keyboard is the one that came with my HP Computer, ive been looking around and cant really decide whats better.

Ive been looking at the logitech G series mice , and the razer mice (lachesis etc) , as well as the G15 Keyboard / Saitek Eclipse / eclipse II / Razer Keyboard (forgot name) and i am unsure which would be better, i think the razer one has a feature where it wont bug out on you when you press more than 3 buttons at once (gets annoying when playing wow and it bugs out) , but yea any tips would be appreciated, im looking to spend about 90 and below for a mouse, and up to 100$ on a keyboard (the ones ive selected all fit that i think)

Answer:Best Gaming Keyboard / Mouse?

I've been quite happy with my Razer Copperhead the first time i went into half-life 2 death match along with a Func Pad. And as soon as i got into the match i got 3 headshots kills in under 4-5 minutes. Honestly i'm calling that beginners luck . But honestly it's a beautiful mouse where you can adjust the weight/speed of the mouse so if you like your cursor to move in a very "small" increments" pretty ideal for sniping than you set it at a lower DPI. If you need to turn around real quick in a death match type setting set a higher DPI and you can turn around and look around amazingly fast.

The FunCpad also has an amazing effect on a mouse such as this as it has 2 sides to it which you can flip over painlessly. One of the smooth surface and one kind of grainy surface. You choose which side is comfortable for you.

As for a gaming keyboard...I can't really give you any info on one of those as i haven't owned one of those. But I can vouch for that mouse though ^_^.

Razer, and Logitech are my first two choices for gaming mice, from there it is all about how much money you want to spend. Personally I like mice that give you a switch that toggles the dpi on the fly. That way you can have it super sensitive for gaming and not so sensitive for non-gaming uses.

I bought this mouse a few months ago, when I came upon this guide. I was quick to open up my mouse, and I noticed that there was no weight in it. Is this normal? I have the blue (later) version, and maybe one of the changes was taking out the weight, although I don't think they would do that. Is it possible I got a mouse that was already opened, and repackaged?

Also, when I opened it up, a tiny little spring came out, I figured it was no big deal, and when I put it back together, I noticed that when I move the scroll wheel, it doesn't make any sound, and it glides along (which is awesome, highly reccomended). Just saying, I don't have any complaints about that.

Last, but not least, I'm running on basic MS drivers, not mouseware 9.8. I have enhanced mouse precision on, on highest speed, and sometimes when I try and move the mouse, it will studder backwards in the opposite direction that I'm moving it. Is this reverse acceleration? How can it be fixed? It can be very annoying when I'm gaming or doing anything else.

Answer:Mouse gaming problems (vernong)

Few things I would try. I have a G5 optical laser mouse thing. Anyway sometimes it gets really dirty under the sensor and I just grab a Q-tip and swirl it around in there and it runs ALOT smoother. However, I doubt this is the problem because the mouse is brand new.

Check mouse acceleration in game and in windows (in the mouse settings page it is marked as make my mouse more accurate or something) anyway, if you disable those it makes gaming + aiming alot better (Ex-ET Player).

Also the polling rate would be another thing to look at.

By no means am I an expert those are just the things I would look at, I will try and dig up a certain mousefix.reg file created by a famous ET player named Raziel who could aim like no tomorrow, that MAY help.

yes, you can use all 5. And it can be done with the 3 LED's.

Highest DPI = top LED only
high-mid DPI = top and middle LED
middle DPI = middle LED only
mid-low DPI = middle and low LED
low DPI = low LED only

without the drivers and software installed, it just uses 3 DPI settings.

Any help?
That's the ebay page.

Answer:Generic Gaming Mouse not installing

If it's anything like my mouse, with 12 buttons, it will definitely need a driver to function. I'll dig out the driver CD later today if you don't find anything. It might work. Who knows?

If you only have 5 buttons, plus the middle-click and middle-button sideways click, you can probably operate it with Xmouse Button Control. It's a fantastic, generic mouse controller that I use on all my machines, even those with normal buttons, to assign various functions to the buttons that can be done on a per app basis. For example, I can assign button 5 to scroll in Word, but to open a new page from a link in a browser or to go back a page.

Hi. First post here, so please excuse me if I've posted this in the wrong subforum.

When playing games, I can't use the keyboard and click on the mouse at the same time. I have to first stop using the keyboard, then wait a few seconds, then be able to click with the mouse.

Any ways to fix this? It's really irritating when playing, especially with those shooter games. Sniping isn't really my speciality


Answer:Keyboard + Mouse won't work together when gaming.

Thanks for the help, everyone! /s

I recently bought a HP Pavilion 15 n083sa, All is well with the system until I load an 3D games.

When moving using the WASD keys, I am unable to pan using the mouse pad, this makes it impossible to play many of my favourite games.

I've looked in the control panel and mouse settings and can't find any obvious solution, (I was hoping for a tickbox saying Disable mousepad while typing but there isn't one)

Am I missing something? I need these things to work simultaneously for gaming.

Thanks all!

I bought e-Blue Cobra Gaming Mouse USB 2.0 and when I inserted it to my laptop it works in a moment then after I opened Dota 2 it's constantly connects/disconnects. I made a mouse troubleshoot the finding was " The USB input device is an older USB device and might not work with USB 3.0". But my gaming mouse is not only working on Dota 2. Is there any way to fix it? Or i just need to buy a new gaming mouse with USB 3.0 version?

I've got my mind set on buying these parts so you would need a pretty solid argument to get me to change, i would just like to hear what you think about these parts and if theres something genuinely bad about them that might make me want to choose something else.

Keyboard: Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110 - USB - $59.99

Mouse: Logitech G700 910-001436 Gaming Mouse - USB, Laser, 5,700 dpi, Black - $79.99

Answer:Thoughts on my keyboard and mouse?(gaming)

Well for "real gaming" I couldn't live without my N52 gaming keypad (Seperate keypad for gaming, not a keyboard).

I then have an earlier version of thet KB just for the backlighting but I don't use anyoff the gaming features on it really, but otherwise a decent KB.

Hey all!  New user, first post.  Please forgive me if there's a post about this before.  I did a search, and didn't turn up anything quite like mine.
Ok, so let's start with the system specs:
Self-built machine with
Z77 chipset mobo
Intel i7-2600k processor
Nvidia GTX 670 gpu
16 gb Corsair RAM
power supply exceeds the needs of the system
The symptoms:
While gaming, my keyboard and mouse will sometimes freeze temporarily or permanently.  This usually happens when I'm playing League of Legends, however, it has started doing it with other games.  If it's a temporary freeze, I'll notice a distinct framerate drop after it unfreezes, and it will recover.  If it's permanent, the keyboard and mouse will lock up, the lights on both will blink on and off, and I'll have to restart my computer to recover control.
Solutions I have tried:
Driver updates for anything and everything, from USB to GPU drivers
Anti-virus scans with free AVG
check power loads on rails to ensure proper power supply
About myself:
I built this machine myself.  I cannot say that I am the most computer proficient person out there, but I consider myself to be much more competent than many.  As such, I may have not checked something properly.
If anyone has any ideas, then I'd greatly appreciate hearing them.  Cheers!

Answer:Keyboard and Mouse lock up gaming

Have you run any other scans - like Malware bytes Antimalware or Super AntiSpyWare?
Keyboard and mouse wired or wireless? If wireless are batteries fresh?
