I'm having difficulty visualising this.
Where does this happen, all the time, even when no application window is open on the Desktop, or in specific applications, like a Word Processor?
Can you take a screen print and let us see that? We usually upload screen prints as jpeg files to some image hosting web site like ImageShack, Photobucket, Flickr, etc, but you can use your own preferred web site.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed my cursor symbols are displaying a part-time box just under the cursor. The box appears after a few seconds of pausing on a character or area that appears to be the triggering source. The box floats a bit, not rigidly attached to the main cursor symbol. I tried selecting different cursor properties in Control Panel/Mouse Properties, but the box remains. I assume this came about following a recent Windows 7 Update. Does anyone know how to get rid of it? It is distracting.
