My USB ports don't work anymore

My mouse was working fine until today. I've tried three different mice and no matter what USB port I use (even the ones on the front) it works for literally 2 seconds (sometimes not at all) before it freezes and stays in place.

I've cleaned the ports out and the plug on the mouse.

Any ideas?

Is it possibly the mouse? Have you tried other USB devices?

Well I have tried three different mice with the same results.

How does one check that if you're using a generic mouse?

Try..

uninstall mouse drivers /software etc.
go in the device mgr, remove the mice (if there) and the usb hubs
boot
it'll redetect the hubs..
reinstall mousy
sacrifice a chicken if applicable and see if it works.
