anoying small white box under pointer hand on web

vista home premium. Just recently when I hover over anything with the mouse pointer on web sites the pointer changes to the little hand pointer and this annoying small white box appears underneath it, then as you move away, the little box stays behind for a few seconds then pops up again where you next stop.What is it and how can I get rid of it.

Forgot to say restore makes no difference.

Just a guess I don't have Vista

Have you looked at mouse in Control Panel?
There may be an answer among Pointer Options

No theres nothing there about it.

I don't have Vista either, but - in XP Control Panel>Mouse under the Pointers tab, there is a Browse button which will show all the available Pointers including lots of different Hand pointers, you could see if there is anything similar in Vista.

sounds like a tooltip, assuming you're using IE you could try this tip - click here
(don't forget to backup the registry first) ...alB
