Have you tried running System Restore back to before the problem arose?

yes tried that, still the problem

Normally it might indicate dust or a foreign body problem, could even be a low battery problem, if using a wireless mouse. But having stated that you get the same results from trying several mice, I am rather stumped?.

Are we talking about the inbuilt touchpad here ?

If so, then he touchpad could be faulty. Also you say you have deleted the drivers (for the touchpad ?). If so Windows will load a generic one that omits many options. The correct driver (such as synaptics etc) often have a sensitivity setting although from the sound of it I suspect a hardware issue.

Above post of mine doesn't read well...

Have you tried disabling the internal touchpad completely to see if the external mice still misbehave ?

Could be something hogging the CPU. Have a look in Task Manager Processes. (Show Processes from all users and click CPU column to sort by activity)

Could be malware. Try Malwarebytes scan.
