Crud attaching to mouse pointer
Setup: Win 7 Home premium 64 bit
This is an odd problem. I periodically get some kind of crud that seems to attach to the mouse pointer. It looks something like the kind of `v' you might make to quickly draw as a representation of a flying bird.
But there 7 or 8, maybe more, stacked vertically. I'm not sure what makes it go away but it does after a while. (usually)
It appears to have something to do with the right bottom corner area of my screen where I have the clock just to the left of icons of the system tray. And finally a sort of patch or rectangular square that will make the desktop appear.
I just found today that if I rub the mouse around in that area, the crud gets many more vertical stacks of `vee', until finally its a little block about the size of a postage stamp, just a little shorter and square, and looks something like a speckled sheet or one with many bits of herringbone pattern.
The block has only happened after passing the mouse there many times. Usually it's just a single column of the these stacked `vees'
It appears I may need a restart or such this time, since the darn thing is not going away and is quite annoying.
Anyone have a guess what might be going on?
I didn't much feel like trying get a screen grab but I can if necessary, to get it figured out.
