mouse pointer erratic operation

this just started...mouse pointer randomly changes to double arrow horiz line the font color changes as it appears this is in blue -- can't remember another post that wasn't black. pointer disappears over a window - I can see the insertion point here but if I move the mouse it changes to a vertical line or dbl arrow over the desktop and the dbl arrow over pares of this FF window. If I reboot it goes normal for a while. There are also times it just freezes for 2 -8 sec. this is W7 ult it happens in my admin and std user logins
