Check what is running in the background that you do not need.

Go to start, run and type in


then under the startup tab see what is there; most can be disabled.

As I'm having the same problem as Yorkieman, I checked out your link and in Start Up have only got running the things it said were essential to keep, i.e. av, firewall, modems etc. Is there anything else I can do - it's as if something takes control of the mouse and I can't do anything until it releases it. I've only noticed it happening in the last week or two and I haven't installed/altered anything in that time.
Running Win98SE. Any help would be appreciated as it's very frustrating!
