Hi, im running windows xp media center edition, my curson somehow changed from the default, to the hourglass you get when somethign is loading, however it is not the default plain white, it has blue on the top, and it spins, so im wondering how this happened, and how to get my arrow back!

If you haven't already checked, go to control panel and click on the mouse and then click on the "pointer options" tab. See if it is still set to Windows default and what pointer is selected. If you can't fix it there then you might want to consider doing a system restore to a date before this happened.
