I've been doing heavy research on this problem of a flickering mouse cursor and haven't turned up a solution that fits. My mouse cursor began flickering a few days ago. I tried the Task Manager CPU usage trick, I don't quite understand what I'm looking at/for. I see nothing but the Idle process using any CPU at 99. The rest is "00".
I'm running on a Lenovo B590 laptop with Win7 Professional. About a month ago, I had downloaded Free Skype Video Recorder (as well as Skype regular) and thought that they may have caused this flicker. So, I successfully un-installed Skype and after downloading the Wise Program Un-Installer program, I forced an un-install of the Skype Recorder (as it wouldn't un-install normally).
Now both Skype-related programs seem to have been un-installed, but my mouse pointer still flickers both in my Firefox browser and outside the browser. Any suggestions out there to get rid of this pesky problem?
Thanks in advance
