    Cursor is getting a black box

    Hi

    Sometimes my cursor changes into a black box, about 100x100 px, and it first
    changes back when it change into another cursor (eg. when i mouse over a text
    or a link).
    It comes in any programs any times.
    Why???

    It's possible that one of the mouse cursor files has become corrupt or is
    missing.

    Open Control Panel and double click the Mouse applet. Click the Pointers Tab
    and scroll through the selected cursors in the Customize section to see if
    that black box you are seeing shows up there. If it is there, select it and
    click the Browse Button to select another cursor for that function.
