Windows 10 Update Caused Cursor Lag

Just updated and everything went smoothly butnow my cursor lags, whether I use my Mouse or the Touch Pad.

I have updated the drivers in the Device Manager, uninstalled the Mouse, disabled Real Tek in the Task Manager, made sure all drivers are updated but nothing works.

It is not the mouse, because I have tried different ones, and the cursor lags with the touch pad as well.

Yes I have done those, it didn't work.   I even uninstalled and reinstalled the mouse.  The cursor moves and then lags a few seconds whether I use the mouse or the touchpad. So it's not specifically a mouse issue.  Immediately happened after the recent update on Friday.  Never happened before.

I experienced the same problem. Tried everything I could find online, but nothing seemed to work. By experiment I tried deleting the webcam drivers (I never use the webcam anyway) and this appeared to do the trick for me:

  1. Right click on Start button and click on Device Manager.
  2. Search for Webcam from the list of devices.
  3. Expand Webcam from the window.
  4. Right click on the driver and click on Uninstall or Delete (or try to Disable it first, if you do regularly use it).

For some people it also appears to be the audio drivers that cause the lag. I personally preferred the lag over deleting my audio drivers, but if you're really desperate you might try that as well.
