Pink dots displayed behind icons

Pink dots have suddenly appeared behind the icons in Outlook. Elsewhere, eg in Windows Explorer there is no problem. Also, my mouse pointer, when in text select mode (ie like a capital I) has a vertical line to its left. This happens in other applications, such as Word and Excel, as well.

I have checked the mouse settings, run an antivirus scan and Ad-Aware SE. Any suggestions what might be causing this?
