 >:(Recently I have noticed that my mouse is often unresponsive in all aspects...

1.  The cursor is sluggish and at times doesn't move.
2.  When I point the cursor over an object the left and right mouse button does nothing immediately, but after several attempts

This was happening with my wired dell mouse.  Since then I replaced it with a logitech wireless mouse with same problem.  Plus I formatted my drive and reinstalled windows, with the same problem after.

This is very frustrating.  Does anybody have an idea of who,when, where, and why?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Your wireless mouse needs as long as one second to react. Also, different surfaces cause varying performance. You may also experience "crosstalk" problems when using multiple wireless keyboards and mouse devices. The mouse or keyboard may be affecting or controlling more than one computer or they may control a nearby computer instead of the intended computer.
hit Ctrl Shift Esc and click on Processes and select Show processes from all users as you might have other people logged on. Then look though the columns and the column with CPU and Mem Usage are particularly important, if you see high numbers note the process and reply.

If there are no cpu or mem intensive problems you might have a problem with your hard drive, as it seems that its taking time to respond so probably when the input devices (mice,keyboard) send requests to the motherboard the hard drive takes it sweet time, usually a sign of corrupted sectors or worse slow but sure failure of the actual drive.

Find the manufacturer of your hard drive and run their Hard Drive Diagnostics Utility.
reply back with your findings
