The mouse pointer changes because of a scroll??

HEY EVERYBODY!
The 1st pic is of my normal mouse pointer,but as soon as i scroll down,as in use the scroll button in my computer,the mouse pointer changes to a weird shape(which is the other pic.)(which works though). i do not know what is causing this and have changed several mouses but the problem still doesn't leave
this is continuing science 2 months now...in the beginning it didn't matter but now it is a headache and a nuisance...
DOES ANY ONE HAVE A REMEDY?????I HAVE GOOGLED IT TOO,even there an answer isn't available

Thanks in advance



p.s.i have a windows 7 ultimate x32 and intel dual core,and 4 gb ram

Which cursor theme do you use, or does your cursors inbuilt with your custom theme ? You may try one thing ..... that is .....

Click start button > Control Panel (large icons view) > Choose "Mouse". now go to the pointer tab , Click on the arrow under "Schemes" and apply "Windows Aero(System Scheme)" . Finally uncheck the box in front of "allow themes to change mouse pointer" .

Follow the snip below . It might work .

yo arc.thanks for the fast reply.
but it didn't work out though.
i have done that b4 and the thing is,the mouse pointer stays that way until i scroll.
as in the windows black(System scheme)
and becomes the other as soon as i scroll.

I don't really know what your problem is, but that hand is supposed to be what it becomes when hovering over a link. I noticed in your screenshot that you do not have the option to permit the theme to change cursors. It seems the opposite of what one would expect, but try enabling it and see what happens.

Did you install the software that came with your mouse? The icon of the finger on the scroll wheel might be a feature of that program.

hey seekermeister,
here,
it was enabled but still no difference.

p.s.the icon is not what it is supposed to be when it is hovering over a link.

Hi Dan and welcome to seven forums. Do you have mouse software which produces an "Autoscroll" feature when you start to scroll?
You can try uninstalling the mouse driver then reinstalling. This may not work since MS's mouse drive is older than dirt.

No mouse scroll with MS Visio and Money
Don't know what happened (or what I did) that caused the mouse scrolling feature (using the mouse center wheel) to stop working in Money and Visio. Don't want to re-install both applications and loose all preference settings. Any idea on how to turn this feature back on? Thanks.
