Recently there's been an annoying little animation pop up whenever I click something. I can't really explain it, but it's similar to the blinking | you see when typing in text fields. Everything I click on something it shows up. It's really annoying. It even happens when I click a picture, except it appears as a HUGE blinking bar.

Can someone help? :thumbsup:

Unfortunately not, as, like the mouse, it doesn't appear when I use printscreen.

A GIF I made of it:

That basically appears anytime I click in things like Firefox, MSN, etc.

Absolutely no one then? Wow.

I was told this is a simple setting on my computer, but the person couldn't tell me what.

It's a shame.. this is really annoying.

IMO, that looks like the blinking cursor I see when attempting a file rename or positioning of the cursor.

Aside from that, I have no clue.

I think it is called a pipe. It is mde with shift+back slash. Like so | . Maybe those those keys are the problem somehow.
