My cursor just suddenly disappears if I am typing an e-mail or working in Word. This happens about every 5 to 10 minutes, then sometimes goes away and my computer works fine.

I ran HiJackThis. Attached is the scan log. Is someone out there smart enough to spot an obvious problem? Thanks.

New mouse...reinstall mouse after removing drivers in Device Manager...remove touchpad drivers, reinstall...lots of easy options to try before assuming the worst.

There is also an option in some programs, as well as Windows too, to hide the cursor when typing.

In Windows I think it is in Control panel > Mouse > Pointer options.
