Windows 7: Mouse Cursor gets bigger all of a sudden

Mouse Cursor gets bigger all of a sudden

sometimes, all of a sudden my mouse cursor gets bigger, like, twice the size. it doesn't look pixelated or edgy. it just doubles in sizes. my current work around is to go to "change how mouse pointer looks" select the aero_arrow file and hit apply. then the mouse is cursor is back to normal.

this happens 3-4 times a day which is really annoying. any solutions for this?
