This guide will teach you how to fix "broken mouse" icon which sometimes shows up on Windows seven mostly by ATI/AMD Graphics card users running on two monitors.
If your mouse is messing up and looks something like this or even worse(sometimes users with 2+ monitors will find they see normal mouse icon on one screen), you are probably looking for an answer to your problem.
Since this has happened to me sometimes I decided to write a guide on how to get rid of it. Note that some ways work for some people and others for other people.
What will be doing to get rid of this?
1. Go to start menu and type ‘Mouse’ and open Mouse Properties. Navigate to ‘Pointer Options’ and tick ‘Display pointer trails’. If this seems to change your cursor to normal you are done. If the long trail bothers you, you can set it to ‘Short’ and it will be alot less noticable.
2. Right click on your taskbar (or superbar as some call it) and unlock it by unchecking ‘Lock the taskbar’ now click and drag your taskbar around the screen (if you have two or more screens drag it to the other screens) very fast and then lock it back in place.
3. If none of the above works you can also try changing your system theme by right clicking on desktop and clicking ‘Personalize’ and clicking on one of the themes, for example ‘Windows Classic’.
4. If none of the above seems to work you have no other choice but to restart your computer.
