malfunctioning text cursor

  computerdiv 16:55 01 Mar 2007

hello again. my text cursor is playing silly games with me. i call it now you see me, now you don't. basically it keeps dissapearing about 2 seconds after clicking in a search box. i can write about 2 letters before it vanishes and i then have to click in the search box again.i think the problem is causing the same problem in the start menu too, because that turns back off in about the same amount of time even when the mouse arrow is hovering over it so i have to be very quick to select an application.i know that sometimes the text cursor does stop working on all computers but this time it persistent and very annoying. please help.

I recommend that you run your anti-virus program.

What AV have you got installed on your PC.

"ran about a half dozen different virus scanners now" Which ones?

Do you have a Firewall?

Do you have any Anti Malware Programs installed?

Which ones?
