Windows 7: Cursor Disappears When Streaming Divx

Cursor Disappears When Streaming Divx

This has been a persistent problem with all versions of Windows, and all browsers. When I stream Divx online, my cursor disappears and I eventually have to restart my browser for this to stop.
I don't have a screensaver enabled, so it's not that...

I also must mention that this happens either in 32- or 64-bit versions, so that has nothing to do with it either.

See if checking the "Show Location of Pointer" box helps

You know what? I'm going to try this...perhaps that is the only solution at this point.
It's definitely a strange affliction.

It is probably just a problem with the version of divx you have. Do you really have the latest version of divx? It should be version 7. Also, you can go to the divx website and go to their labs.

I believe they have a new version of web player? 2.0.1
