Windows 7: Mouse Cursor disappearing?

Mouse Cursor disappearing?

Hello, I got this really annoying problem that won't go away. It's happened on my old computer, and when I was transferring my crap from that computer to this new one, the problem came with it... Sadly.

The problem is, when I'm on any website, the mouse cursor will just randomly fade out, and be gone, until I move it. This is VERY annoying because When I go to right click, or click something, the mouse cursor will be gone and I can't see where I'm clicking. Besides doing System restore, how can I fix this? Thank you

Hi DarkScorpion, welcome to the forums

If you open Control Panel then click Hardware & Sound followed by 'Mouse'. Under 'Pointer options' does it have 'Hide pointer while typing' checked? (see pic)

If so, try un-checking it to see if it has any effect.

Hope it helps

I will check that, and I also went to internet properties under IE and set the advanced settings for default to see if it would fix it. Not sure if it did since most of these problems start when I got youtube on, or on a tab in the back ground. I'll check back later on.
