    Hi, first post :)
    My problem is that whenever I move my mouse, the computer lags. This problem shows it's head after a while when the computer is on.
    I open up Task Manager and in the processes list I watch csrss.exe use 70+% CPU as I move my mouse around on the screen. When the mouse is still or moving very slowly, the process drops down to normal usage.
    I can test that it lags the whole system by opening any program then watching it load very slowly as I move my mouse. I do it again and it loads at normal speed without moving my mouse.

    I have a Logitech G5 running on a
    2.4Ghz
    1.25Gb RAM
    Geforce 6600
    If you want a full DxDiag or Hijack this just ask :)

    This problem is annoying for me because I tend to be micromanaging many applications open at once and I don't like lag!!

    Logitech G5 mouse. I have Microsoft Intellipoint Drivers but they are for the mouse I used to use for the computer. The G5 is just Plug and Play.

    Maybe boot to safe mode, uninstall all mouse drivers in device manager (start, run, type devmgmt.msc , and click ok), reboot, and let windows install the right driver without the inetellipoint clutter...

    Okay I'll post back if it's fixed or not, thanks!

    Edit: It's fixed for the moment... I'm yet to see if it starts happening again like it usually does after a while.

    It's happening again :( When I move the mouse the same thing happens, csrss.exe gets CPU hungry.
