IE8 Mouse Cursor Disappears


When using Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) the mouse pointer disappear. Any of this condition may happen:

  • The mouse cursor disappears until you hit the Alt key
  • The mouse cursors starts blinking at a slow rate of about 3 seconds when the mouse is not been used.
  • Right-clicking a link or a selected text area the menu show up but no highlight selection is visible.


The problem could be caused by an opened tab with Flash or active slide shows. Closing the tab may resolve the problem.
