Windows 7: Mouse Pointer Glitch

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
Mouse Pointer Glitch


Well I have been on the internet for a long time and leeched from forums extensively. This is my first post/thread. I have recently begun to use Windows 7 Professional (32bit) and have an issue with my mouse pointer. When I mouse over a text box the vertical cursor appears and to the left of it a partial mouse pointer shows up as well. It is really annoying. I tried a screen capture but it does not pick up the mouse cursor.
Anyway, if someone can help me with this it would be most appreciated.

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) Service Pack 1

Hi, Kyle. I'm far from an expert, but if I were in your situation, I would probably try using a different cursor, to see if the problem still occurs.

This can be achieved by going to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Mouse, and then clicking the Pointers tab. :)
