Why does my curser fall under my window?
« on: 18/08/2010 04:22:01 »
Sometimes my curser dispersers under my window where I can't see it. It still works. If I click something by accident it will do whatever the click is suppose to do, but it makes it hard if I can't see where I'm clicking. Ironically, when this happens it turns ME into a curser!

Is there anyway to get the curser back on top of the window where I can see it?

Windows has a control panel that permits the user to change the presentation of the mouse pointer and display's colors presentations.
Maybe for some reason when it disapears it is really blending with the color of that popup window. Giving the appearence it is behind that particular windowed application.

If it is disappearing on the desktop interface GUI, then there may be a little more to investigate.

Try pressing ALT-TAB to find the active window. It seems like the software application itself has another "active window" and the primary window has been reassigned because of where you moved the mouse.
Also, run your ant-virus software if that is probably not the problem.
