Cursor refreshing every half-second

By pharaohseven

  1. My cursor keeps changing to the "wait something's loading" cursor then changing back every single second or so.
    I haven't done anything to provoke this, however I did get a trojan which was immediately removed... but I've done virus scans with 3 seperate programs, McAfee, Ad-Aware, Superantispyware, and I'm clean. I've set my firewall to "block all" in case it may have been some remote program, but that failed as well.

    Thanks for your help!

    Download and install free Malwarebytes and run the scan. You may need to turn off the system restore first. Report the results

    Thanks! I love this software, my other antivirus programs didn't find anything! unfortunately, my mouse still refreshes constantly. I'll try restarting my compy.
