Windows 7: Can't see mouse cursor in media center

Can't see mouse cursor in media center

I can't see my mouse cursor (Logitech vx revolution) in media center. Is this the way it's supposed to work?

Any suggestions for getting my mouse cursor to be visible in MC?

Edit: It seems using an external display (while using laptop) is part of the problem. Switching MC to windowed mode enables me to see the mouse. So just can't use full screen mode and see the mouse cursor. Weird.

Here's the Simple Fix

Cursor goes missing and random issue can be simply fixed. For some reason the ghost in the system turned your Magnifier program on and Media Center does not like this.

Go to your desktop, open magnifier, End this program and it works! Cursor back when in Full screen Media center.

The other option is to just run MC in windowed mode as this also gives you a cursor if you want to have magnifier running. Hope this helps.
