    My USMB friends, I am having the most annoying little issue that is about to make me take this mouse along with the others I have in the box here and use them for targets. Let me explain, my mouse stutters when I move it across the screen, now while for some this might be ok, it's an annoying little trait that it has developed. I have tried just about everything possible I know of, including unloading every driver that might interfere with it short of reloading Windows 7 which is the last resort. I am about to conclude that the Mouse itself might be the issue, if anyone has had the same issue feel free to chime in.

    Running Win7 64bit
    Logitech MX Mouse

    Laughs well actually funny you should mention that, I am running MINT although I am running it VM and love it too. However having unloaded all that for the moment just to see if the stutter will leave, which it didn't I can safely say that VM Workstation was not the issue.

    I'm assuming you looked for and loaded the latest/greatest drivers....... which could be the issue..... or it could be the mouse itself is defective.... or something in the latest Microsoft update is interfering with the mouse action..... related to the last, install the most recent BIOs in case the issue lies in the update and an older BIOs setting.

    Are you using an "aftermarket" theme?
    That is probably it if you do.
    Try changing your mouse theme to minimal setting and see what happens

    couple of things, I have updated to the latest driver for the Mouse however, when it comes to the BIOS I just did that and the stutter seems to still be there. So what I am going to do next is try and take the computer back to a date prior to the latest update from MS and see if one of their updates might have caused the issue. As for the theme, about the only theme on this computer is a picture of my old aircraft in the background and thats it. I did have at one time a screensaver that my daughter had put on here but I took that off too. Thanks for the hints I am going to give those a try and keep you posted.

    If the roll back doesn't work then it's either a faulty bit of code that doesn't play well with Win 7 (I assume that's what you're running) or the mouse itself is the issue. Good luck

    Just thought of something else, an issue I had with an optical mouse years ago. Is your mouse pad solid color or does it have an image/lettering on it? If it has an image/lettering then switch to a solid color and see if that doesn't fix the problem.

    Well the Mouse is a Logitech MX Mouse and I have a an aluminum mouse pad with a solid black surface, however I have tried other surfaces and it does change slightly. Heres and interesting bit of news, if you start the computer in Safe Mode.. no stutter.

    It is the Logitech software.

    Loading in Safe Mode = No Logitech software only standard mouse drivers from Microsoft.

    I would wager that if you remove the Logitech software and drivers that the stutter goes away.

    Mouse issues are 99.9% of the time non Windows OS related.
