Cursor Problem (Disappearing)

From time to time my pointer just disappears from the screen. It can be at any time and the only way I get it back is to re-boot the system. I have run Malwarebytes on the system and it reports no problems. There are no previous drives to roll back to and a driver update search reports I have the most up todate drives installed. My system is Vista home basic. Any ideas? This dumb blond could do with some help. x

maybe try another Mouse and see if that works ok.
Or go into Device manager and remove the driver reboot and Microsoft should install the new driver.

Maybe change the pointer and see if the new one will work.

Do you have a patterned mouse pad?
Try a plain one or put a sheet of paper over it and see if it still disappears.
