Well my cursor was just a Vertical Blinking line before but now it changed (don't know how) anyone know how to change it back to a Vertical Blinking Line? Some people call it the I bar (line before you type). It's annoying me while I do my coursework lol. Thanks

Really hard to give a meaningful answer as this is proving impossible to reproduce.

Try choosing a new mouse pointer scheme (just large and black, say, not some stupid circus theme), see if the cursor looks OK. Change back to normal wiondows scheme and see if it still looks OK.

(I don't actually think the mouse cursors will make any difference, as the I-beam text select cursor is not the one used to display the vertical flashing line in Word. Worth a shot though)
