Windows 7 RTM 64-bit mouse freezes/stutters multiple times per minute
I've installed the Windows 7 Enterprise RTM (my company has software assurance) on one of our machines, dual booting with XP. The Windows 7 install is totally clean, but it has a nagging issue of mouse pointer freezing/stuttering that is driving me absolutely
nuts! Basically, every 10-15 seconds, the mouse pointer just freezes in place for about a second. The computer itself doesn't seem to be locking up but the mouse pointer will then suddenly jump back about where it should have been if it didn't freeze. (i.e.,
it seems to be lagging behind responding to the mouse but catches up, it doesn't continue from where it was).
It seems like the problem is getting worse the more drivers and such that I setup, I was hoping once I got all my sound/video drivers in it would get better.
Does anyone have any ideas and/or performance monitoring tips? Nothing seems to be spiking in task manager. And it all works fine in XP.

I would be sure you have Win 7 drivers for the ATI video, either from Windows Update, or the ATI site. Aero doesn't seem to be working right. You might get some infor from the command 'perfmon /res' , or looking at the Action Center in Control Panel.
