Windows 7: Cursor Disappears in games

Cursor Disappears in games

As soon as I load up the menu for Warhammer: Dawn of War the cursor appears in the middle of the screen then goes away. It still functions, but you just can't see it. I have tried compatibility mode and changing the graphics settings neither worked, anyone have an idea on how to fix this?

Have you tried updating your mouse drivers?

Also, if you have the nVidia control panel, check there to see if there is a setting "Hide mouse during full screen programs".
