Mouse Pointer Delays in Virtual Server

I am running Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 and every 10 seconds or so I get a pause in the mouse movement on the screen – very annoying.

Examining the performance logs of the server I see that the Virtual Server service “vsssrv” goes to 0% CPU utilisation when this happens – so something is interupting the service.

Stopping my anti-virus software solves the problem, but introduces another problem in that my computer is now unprotected, so I will post back here later my results on not have the AV software (McAfee Managed Anti-Virus) from scanning the filesystem where my virtual machines are installed and the vsssvc.exe application (“C:\Program Files\Microsoft Virtual Server” folder).
