Only thing i can think of is that it sounds like it might be virus/spyware related. See if you can get a scan done with some good internet security software, i wouldn't be surprised if it picked something up.

The touchpad on my laptop does not work. Cursor is frozen. I have a CQ60-615DX notebook. What do I do? Please help!

Make certain the driver for your touchpad is running- usually it is synaptic- would be found under syntpenh.exe in your task manager. Make certain it is enabled in the mouse properties. If that does not work, then connect an external mouse and then disconnect it... sometimes that kicks the service back into starting correctly

Mouse pointer shakes when charger is connected in laptop

This is a funny little problem; it made me smile. Your problem sounds like electro-magnetic interferance from your power adapter. When the electricity passes through your power adapter into your laptop, something is creating electro-magnetic noise in the RF (radio frequency) spectrum which is causing your mouse cursor to shake. I would recommend replacing the power adapter. You could also try plugging your power adapter into a UPS instead of directly into a wall or surge protector. It might help clean up the incoming power and reduce the line noise.

Wacom mouse freezes

Freezing of mouse is associated with virus infection of your PC. So, get connected to the internet, and download the Paretologic Antivirus/or Trojan Remover software, and install it in your PC. The program once installed, run the virus scan. To clean your PC free from unwanted files, you can also download the Tune Utility of 2009 and install in your PC. I believe this will
give you the solution needed by your problem. Just
send your e-mail, if you still have the problem.

My cursor won't stop shaking excessively. I can't click on anything either unless I slam down on the mouse really hard.

Have you replaced the batteries?
Otherwise, reduce the sensitivity of the mouse in the Control Panel.

Genius 8x6 tablet pen freezes

Try putting a new battery in it. Mine was having the same sort of problems, and they were pretty much entirely fixed by a new battery.

My cursor was smooth and easy to draw with, but now it's all shaky and won't draw well!

the latest drivers have 2 modes...

1 open the driver control panel
2 at the top of the window double click the intuos3 tablet that is giving you problems
3 choose standard mode instead of recognition data

... this is at least what worked for me. I hope it helps.
