This never happened with XP, but every time I watch a full-screen streaming video, my mouse is HUGE when I "un-fullscreen" the video. I also see a TON of system lag when this happens. As of now, the only resolution I have discovered is to reboot the PC...which becomes pretty troublesome when this happens 1-3 times/day.

I have fully updated my video drivers (and Catalyst) so that's not the problem. HELP!! :huh:

I would rule out video or driver related issues just yet. Do you an ATI card? I suspect that's the case, and if so that may be the problem. If the problems only happen when you move into full screen mode and back out, then I think you've got a video card or display driver problem, regardless of what updates have been done or whether your card is compatible or not. I have a laptop that came with Vista and has an ATI video card and this problem occurs all the time, and got to the point even where anytime a full screen display was done it would crash and freeze the video. What is your video card model and PC model?
I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.
