Mouse freeze

Hello All,
I am having a problem with my mouse freezing up for 5 to 10 seconds and then releasing or sometimes not releasing at all, I can unplug it from the USB port and plug in again and it works fine for a couple of minutes and then does the same thing again. While it is frozen I can still use the touch pad.
I have tried re-installing the driver but still have the problem.
I have run virus, trojan horse, checks and everything comes out ok (using Norton Internet Security/Virus software)
Even tried starting in safe mode and running virus scan, no virus or trojan horses.
I have two Logitech IR USB wheel mice, Tried both of them, still have the problem.

My system is as follows:
Gateway MX6436 Mobile AMD Sempron Processor 3300+ 1.99 GHz 960 MB of RAM
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3
Logitech IR USB WheelMouse (Device Status: This device is working properly.)
Nothing in startup.
Apps running in task bar: Norton Internet Security/Virus software, Memeo Instant Backup & Seagate Dashboard (for external backup disk, disk not plugged in)

Note: I have even tried quitting the Memeo Instant Backup & Seagate Dashboard, still have the problem.

Help please,
Thank you,
