Windows 7: Missing or sticking cursor when typing posts

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Missing or sticking cursor when typing posts

When typing a post the cursor is blinking away as I type.

After a few lines it stops blinking

Eventually it disappears and can make editing a headache as you can never be sure where the cursor is.

As this is a fairly new phenomenon can any one tell me if it is something I have done, or can do, to stop this odd behaviour?

I am using Windows 7 and IE 9 with all updates offered installed.

Oddly this is the only forum I use where the above does not happen.
