Windows 7: ** Mouse pointer changes to a small diamond when using Touch Screen **

** Mouse pointer changes to a small diamond when using Touch Screen **

Got a strange issue which is bugging me.

I have an ergo AS2 all-in-one PC with built in Touchscreen Display on WIndows 7

All drivers are installed, and the touch screen is working, however the Mouse Pointer on screen is bugging the hell out of me.

I have USB mouse plugged in as well, and when using the USB mouse, i get the default white arrow, but as soon as I use finger on the Touchscreen the Mouse pointer changes to a small diamond. When I take my finger of the screen, the mouse pointer dissappears alltogether (until the next time i touch or move the mouse)

I want the touchscreen Mouse pointer to stay the same as the normal white arrow. I have tried all the options under Mouse settings and Pen and Touch, but none work.

Anyone able to help? This was working fine on the stock Ergo Window 7 image before I put my own Windows 7 image on it, so I know it must be possible.

Thanks in advance.

Is this something that has just happened, i.e. it used to work with white arrow on both ext mouse and touch ? If so, have you changed anything ?
