Not on mine, It may be caused by your low spec PC.

I'd say it's more likely to be a low spec, botched, incarnation of WMC in Windows7, because the PC was built for video editing and is far more powerful than needed to cope with anything WMC is potentially capable of LOL.

Odd that this behaviour doesn't happen under 3rd party TV/PVR software, nor that this was an issue under XP-MCE either

Just do a search for the number of forum posts where people are complaining about locked cursor behaviour in WMC when the operating system is supposed to be able to support multiple displays...

Qdos, your foresight in specifiying a 'built for video editing' (for Windows 7) before Vista was released does not appear to be working out very well...re-download from the actual manufacturer and update ALL, yes ALL, your drivers and begin with the chipset, then video, then audio, making sure to reset your BIOS to defaults first and ensuring any unused onboard devices are disabled. Reboot after each step, regardless of whether or not prompted. I am not experiencing your issue, so I cannot blame WMC for it. I also have not installed any third party media apps with the exception of Winamp - remove any and all first...Please let us know your results.

How would you know? I've never discussed any problems with video editing on here in relation to the specs and board I've listed - and nor do I see the point of your Vista mention, the hardware concerned in the specs wasn't bought or assembled prior to Vista being released...
