Mouse Pointer

  watchful 18:03 06 Feb 2003

Whilst I'm on this site, just the last couple of days, my mouse pointer keeps flickering and disappearing altogether.
Anyone know why this is?

watchful, so does mine, but only on some pages, and not others!

It's OK at the moment but was doing it for about half an hour and I had to literally guess where it was pointing.
It must be something to do with this site I think.

in xp there's a setting to hide the mouse pointer while typing something..any chance that that could be it ?

Now stabalised.

Thanks for all your comments but it does seem to have stabilized now.

On my spare PC, (Win 98). The mouse pointer has disapeared. When I start up in Safe Mode it is OK. I have disabled all Start up items to see if one of them was the cause but there is no difference...Help!

maybe you have to install drivers for your mouse?
