    Just a thought here, but try updating your Graphics driver, especially if you have a gaming or high end GPU.  The problems with the mouse freezing have to do with an incompatibility between graphics and mouse tracking.  (Or at least I have found several instances of this.)  Update both.  

    Lastly, try using a generic mouse driver, the one provided from Microsoft.  Sometimes they work better because they don't interfere with the graphics card driver as much. Just a thought.

    what is your CPU? Windows 10 requires a MUCH FASTER CPU than previous versions of Windows. i usually recommend an Intel Core i5 or better, or for AMD, any Ryzen CPU. anything older will not work well. ESPECIALLY AVOID:

    Celeron, Turion, Sempron, Atom CPUs.
