Welcome to the forums!
How many vCPU's are assigned to the guest?
Are the virtual disks (*.vmdk) excluded from the host virus scanning?
VCP 3 & 4

I would like to give credit to the person who found this out but I am unable to find the blog again after testing the solution.
In server 2008 after installing the tools before or after restarting it doesn’t matter (I like to do it before to avoid another restart).
1. Start menu
2. Right click on computer
3. Click manage
4. Expand diagnostics/device manager/display adapter
5. Right click the basic adapter – update driver software
6. Browse my computer for driver software
7. The driver will be in c:/Program Files/Common Files/VMware/Drivers/wddm_video/
8. The driver will install, No more Jumpy or slow mouse
All we are doing is updating the driver to the "VMware SVGA 3D" driver. If you can not find the driver check your directory as there are several VMware direcories. We want the one in Common Files in the program files directory not the Program Files (x86) directory. if the directory is not there reinstall the tools.
This completely fixed my issue.
Wow! I usually dont like joining forums, but I had t log in just to say this worked for me!
