Annoying Little Blinking Hand Cursor

Posted

I'm not sure where it came from, but I've noticed the last few days that I suddenly have this blinking hand/arrow cursor when I'm online. I thought it was just on one site, but it isn't; it shows up everywhere. I've run AVG; it doesn't pick up anything. I've tried going into settings, but the arrow is chosen...not this weird blinking hand thing. Any ideas how to permanently get rid of it and go back to my arrow? Many thanks.

Try select arrows to their default first. If it works then customise it according to your choice...

I've no idea why this happens but you should be able to fix it by -

Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Pointers.

The mouse controls was the first place that I went - it does nothing. :( I'm beginning to think it's a script that's downloaded from somewhere; I have no idea where to even begin to look for something like that.
