The desktop and mouse pointer get stuck or freezes every 3-5 second.
And if a install Windows Server 2008 (not R2) it works fine until a install the chipset software (ver:220.127.116.119) the a get the same problem.
I had the same problem, are you working with the onboard matrox G200 card? I think this is the problem (8mb's of video ram isnt enough), try to install a proper graphics card and report back please.
There's also a known issue in R2 with Intel NIC driver 14.2 and earlier. Install 14.4 or later (I think 14.6 is available now) and the problem should be resolved.
A think it´s 32mb of ram on s5500hcv.
After a installed a Nvidia card with 64mb it got better but not good.
So a reinstalled the onboard Matrox driver.
As suggested a updated the nic driver to 14.6 and then a played around with the SEWMDx64.exe inf tool for the Matrox card, and now it´s acceptable but not good.
A think this problem is a combination of different things, a hope the address this issue asap.
Thanks for your input in this issue.

When a installed the matrox driver with "SEWMDx64.exe 2 8 1 1 1 1" it maid it better, but if this is the right way to do it a don´t know.
Like Dan mentioned, this is a known issue caused by embedded NIC driver. You mentioned you installed driver 14.6, how did you do that? In my case I just ran the W2K8_R2-Win7_x64_Install.bat file in the intel-lan_msft_v14.6_whql.zip package and issue resolved.
Have you tried the 14.4 instead of 14.6 network drivers? Also have you installed manufacturer's x64 drivers for your mouse? I have searched a bit the internet and windows 7 have similar cursor problems.
