Question mouse cursor replaced by black box...
I installed Windows 98 SE on my computer, but my mouse cursors were replaced by a big, black sqaure with stripes running through it. I went to the Control Panel to select a new cursor scheme under the Pointers menu but my standard windows cursors were missing. I downloaded a new cursors scheme off the microsoft website and although this fixed the cursor in the majority of places, the black box still appears when I hover the mouse over web links and also in programs such as Paint. How can I get rid of this problem and, if possible, get the standard windows cursor scheme back?

Do the on-line virus scan and, get the free firewall Sygate if you do not have one installed, by clicking the colored links below.

Cure Your Ills With the System File Checker
Windows 98

When you're having trouble with Windows 98--and who doesn't at some point--you might want to try a little-known utility called the System File Checker. Close all open programs and go to Run in the Start menu. Type sfc and click OK.
Check the Scan For Altered Files radio button and click Start. SFC will look for files that have been corrupted. If it finds any, you can use it to extract clean versions of the files directly from your installation disk.

Or

To start System File Checker, follow these steps:
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, click System Information, and then click System File Checker on the Tools menu.
