Windows 8: Solve Game Lagging With Logitech Mouse / Keyboard

So as some know, I recently switched from Windows XP 32-bit edition to Windows 8 Consumer Preview 64 bit edition (Metro). I skipped the Windows 7 and Windows Vista route and went from x86 to x64.
My Keyboard and Mouse are part of the Logitech Wave Pro wireless set, which runs off of a shared USB wireless stick. It worked flawlessly under Windows XP.
However, after formatting and going to Windows 8, the game FEAR Combat (F.E.A.R.) no longer ran smoothly. It had a lot of lag and would stutter or even microstutter. Though the problem wasn’t apparent, it was caused by my keyboard / mouse set. To get rid of this stuttering, you go to Device Manager, then locate “Human Interface Devices” and DISABLE all that say “HID-compliant device”. This can be listed numberous times — for me it was listed 5 times — including once under the alias “HID-compliant consumer control device”.
This tip works for other games too on the PC, as well as on Windows 7 and with other brands of Logitech Mice, which is where the problem exists — such as with the Logitech G series too.
So remember — if you have a choppy, stuttering frame rate or low frames per second (fps) in general, it could be your drivers.
