Mouse pointer lag/freezing

Hi guys,

recently after I've noticed this happening on a more frequent basis. When I move my mouse pointer, the whole screen will occasionally freeze for around 3~5 seconds before it moves again. Also, when the freezing/lag happens, restarting the desktop fixes it. But it'll come back again after a day or so.

Additionally, the "pointer" itself will be unresponsive. Even when it's able to move (not hanging), the pointer's image is often lagging behind. I.E, when I hover over a text link, it doesn't become the "hand" icon, but only changes after a few seconds to that. Sometimes even giving a weird-coloured "I" of sorts.

Hope someone can provide guidance on this issue.
