I have a problem that started recently.
My mouse started to lag while using the mouse in photoshop. If I try to drag something by pushing space bar and moving the mouse, it takes a second to respond and then it responds and moves the canvas.
If I'm using a brush, it takes over a second to respond and then it creates a straight line and after that it responds normally.
Every time I use anything, transform, brush, move a layer or canvas, the system lags a second to respond then works normally.
It happens even with a new file, empty.
If I use my wacom intuos 4 (both pen and mouse) works perfectly, but my microsoft wireless mouse keeps lagging.

It started recently, about 2 weeks ago or maybe a bit more. Could it be an update? I haven't installed nor changed anything on my computer and it always worked fine for the last 2 years so I don't really know what to do.

I'm using a Windows 7 Ultimate - with Photoshop CC latest update (yesterday I guess)
AMD FX 8120
ATI Radeon HD6870
16gb RAM
1TB HD
Corsair AX750 PS

Thank you.

Try using a wired mouse and see if it is better.

What you're describing sort of sounds like a driver bug where the event timer for the mouse is out of sync with the rest of the computer.
