    ok, i have this issue with my mouse. the image will freeze on the screen, but i can still select things and navigate. i found a simple fix if i turn on the mouse trails but i would like a permanent solution. also it is not the mouse or the driver as i have tried several different mice and their drivers.

    no more processes were running than usual, and i checked them all and they arent associated with viruses, but it only seems to do it when i run a game or itunes

    could be a heat issue...if its a usb mouse it works on the southbridge side if I remember right..and so does your vidio card in fact anything PCI, audio card, video card ,modem all share the southbridge bus and you may be overloading it...if its a ball mouse clean it ...other then that I dont know ...maybe someone else knows...I assume you have played in the mouse section of the control panel because you turned on trails
