I'm cleaning a system for a client and I've gotten out some remnants of malicious items along with random cruft, however I've come across a sticky issue - the cursor is animated and I can't find anything that has latched on. Anywhere in the control panel it shows as being a normal cursor. I see no odd programs installed to mess with the cursor. I see no odd directories showing programs I don't know of. What the cursor is doing is its animated, normally white, but does blue wipes upward every couple seconds. When launching a program, it displays a timer below the cursor for how long it takes to open the application. I want to get rid of it, as it annoys both me and the client, I don't like unknown programs running, and I would guess it shouldn't be there.

Any thoughts on what this is?
