    I'm trying to fix a computer for someone, its loaded with spyware. The problem is that the mouse pointer isn't there. I've tried using different mice, changing the mouse scheme and display themes, and the mouse pointer still does not appear. The machine's running Windows ME (argh). Anyone know how I could get the pointer back?

    Hiya

    If its loaded with spyware, lets get rid of that first, as that may be the main problem.

    go to http://forum.aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    Regards
