1. Even I'll be banging my head if this works, but try clicking "Use Defaut" (Control Panel>Mouse>Pointers) & "Apply."
-Also, what happens when you try to change to a different scheme?

2. I second a malware/virsus/etc scan. Just because you didn't knowingly do anything dangerous, doesn't mean there isn't a virus or something around somewhere.

Miranova23,
yes,i've tried the things u said.
and i already have an anti virus.(Kaspersky total security 2011)
and do worry,coz i am banging my head over this problem.
any way,
thanks for the quick reply!
p.s.it doesnt show up anywhere on my list of pointers.

It is not good that your problem is still there, Danshu ! I know that you have tried a lot of fixes already, but still I am suggesting a few checks ..... let us see what happens .

First, (Though you have Kaspersky) Download Malwarebytes Anti Malware (Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download), install it ans have a full scan of your computer.

Second, Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker , if there is any system integration violation, it will be fixed .

Finally, if it is still there, you may try for a Repair Install .

All the virus checking in the world isn't going to fix this. It is an animation/pointer installed by proprietary mouse software.

For the record, I think you're right. DanshuP, back to the pointers tab, click "Browse," and see if you can locate the actual cursor file.

If it is there, I honestly don't know what would happen if you deleted it, or renamed it, or renamed something else to match its name... Any further ideas?

Thank you all of you!! :D



THANKS A LOT ALL OF YOU!I"M GONNA ADD TO ALL YOUR REP.
i finally discovered what it was.it was some thing called"alps for scrolling VIAO"
and as was going for a clean up for my Computer,i saw this unnecessary file and uninstalled it,and BOOM!the cursor is back to normal.
but there is a problem again,
it won't scroll now -____-

What do you mean it won't scroll? If you had some special way of scrolling, AND if this is a VAIO, then you NEED the software installed.

If this is a VAIO, then you should go to Sony's site and download the latest version of the software.

You may back your files up externally and restore your Acer to factory defaults . As it is an Acer, a Vaio touchpad scrolling app shouldn't be there .

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.
