Any application available to gather and analyze stats about mouse usage.

For e.g.: Mouse movement speed, number of productive and unproductive clicks, etc. The more the analysis available the better.

I have look at anti-mousing its the closest that I have found to my usage unfortunately the stats reset every time you close the program. I need a program to gather stats for long term analysis.

P.S: Any similar program for keyboard usage too.

You want Application Usage Statistics.

This application generates statistics on the usage of keyboard and mouse. It's freeware.

that's very cool, needed to measure average mouse movement speed. Like you know to distinguish a slow user from a fast user – rzlines Oct 21 '10 at 16:18
Its very buggy and it doesn't do applications well I'm still testing it. – rzlines Oct 21 '10 at 17:48

Nice application, but we need to register to use it and it seems to have a hard time running without crashing (always crashes after 12 hours - posted on two different PC with Windows 7 and Windows 7 SP1). – Franck Dernoncourt Jan 11 '13 at 17:24
