Need a bit more information, what OS are you using and what type of mouse is it.

Brockster are you using custom cursors?
My girlfriend's PC has a problem in that the pointers flash a lot if you use anything other than the Windows Standard pointers.
Don't know if that'll help.

You could try upgrading Intellipoint if you've got it - I'm using v4.01 but I think 4.1 has been released.

Go to Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs and see if 'Comet Cursor' is installed on your system. If so, revome it - it's spyware, it slows you down, and you don't need it.

I have the same problem with Java running on XP pro. All sorts of screen flashes. Very annoying.

I reckon every one should have ad-aware, get it fromdownload.com (http://www.download.com). I used to use custom cursors but they do blink and can get irritating. Stick with your default.

It Wasn't Me!
