What is this mouse pointer icon and how to I get rid of it?
Ever since my work computer was updated to Windows 7, many of the mouse pointer icons include this thing to the left that I think looks like an old fashioned telephone receiver (see attached image file). It drives me mad, as I find it disorienting. I cannot find anyway of removing it through the mouse customization settings. I've become obsessed with finding out how to get rid of it.
Another interesting point is that I don't have this problem on my home version of Windows 7.

If I'm looking at the OP's screenshot correctly, the item to the right is the pointer. It looks like the normal text select pointer.
The left/circled item seems to be the blinking text cursor with some sort of modification or rendering problem. I wonder what the IT department (if there is one) has to say about this.
You issue sounds a bit different in that it seems to be purely pointer related (as opposed to cursor related for the OP). You might want to start your own thread. (And please follow up on your existing threads :-)
