cursor disappears from screen sometimes...

Hello experts, can you help ?

Sometimes the cursor starts to fade away and sometimes it just disappears from the screen alltogether during normal use. The mouse occasionally finds the cursor again but it is a bit searching for a needle in a haystack.

Have changed the mouse 3 times to eliminate a naughty mouse, latest mouse only installed this week.

I use XP. The PC is less than a year old.

Please can anyone shed any light on this problem ?

Does this happen in any particular programme, or all the time? Also is it while the mouse is active, or 'resting'?
